Sesame Shrimp Toasts Recipe

Step 1

Drain shrimp well on paper towels.

Step 2

Mince shrimp finely. In a bowl, mix shrimp with ginger, garlic and cornstarch. Lightly whisk egg white with a fork (just enough to make frothy) and add to shrimp. Stir in Five Spice Powder, salt and pepper; mix well.

Step 3

Press shrimp mixture evenly and firmly onto slices of bread. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and press on firmly. Heat 3/4" oil in a large skillet. Lower slices of bread, shrimp-side down, into hot oil and fry 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Keep slices immersed in oil. Drain on paper towels. Cut into fingers and garnish with green onion daisies.
