Love me some Shrimp Toast!
I don't make this nearly enough!
This is what you will need to make your Shrimp Toast:
1/2 Pound of medium sized shrimp, washed, pealed & deveined
1 Large egg white
3 Tablespoons of chopped yellow onion
1 Tablespoon of chopped parsley
1/4 Teaspoon of salt
1/8 Teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1/2 Teaspoon + 2 Table spoons of sesame oil
1 Large egg yolks
1/4 cup of water
16 sliced of white bread with the crusts removed
6 Tablespoons of vegetable oil
How to make them:
Put the shrimp, egg white, onion, cilantro, salt, cayenne, and 1/2 tsp. of the sesame oil in a food processor and pulse two or three times to finely chop. Do not puree.
Put the egg yolks, the remaining 2 Tbsp. sesame oil, and the water in a shallow bowl and whisk to blend.
Spread equal amounts of the shrimp mixture onto 8 slices of the bread.
Top with the remaining 8 slices of bread.
Press together gently but firmly.
Heat 3 Tbsp. of the vegetable oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Dip 4 of the sandwiches into the egg mixture, coating them evenly on both sides.
Fry until golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side.
Remove from the skillet.
Repeat the process with the remaining 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil and sandwiches.
Slice each sandwich into 4 triangles to serve.
