Sesame Prawn Toasts

I don't know about you, but when we get take away Chinese food we always get a bag of Prawn toasts.  These are divided evenly or there will be death and mayhem in our house.  We all love prawn toasts that much. 

Yes I know you can buy them in the freezer section at the supermarket, however I saw a recipe on a website and kind of had an ah ha moment! You know the light bulb went off over my head and I could see what the heck I was doing!

I had some prawns in the freezer and sesame seeds in the cupboard and I picked up a white loaf from the supermarket (I don't buy supermarket bread, I make my own in the bread maker or get a loaf from the bakery) so a cheap loaf to test this recipe was ideal.

500g defrosted raw prawns
6 slices white bread
sesame seeds


In the bowl of your food processor add the prawns, salt and pepper and pulse until you have a smooth paste.

Cut the crusts off your bread slices.

Divide the prawn mix into six and put on each slice of bread.  Spread the prawn mix evenly to the edges of the bread.

In a bowl filled with sesame seeds place the bread prawn side down.  Gently press to ensure covered evenly.

Cut into fingers or triangles, your choice.

Shallow fry in 1 to 1 1/2 cm of hot oil.  I put mine seed side down first cook for 1 to 2 minutes each side or until golden brown. 

Drain on paper towel and serve hot.

You can freeze at this stage.  Allow to cool on tray lined with paper towel and then freeze.  Bag once frozen.  To re heat place in pre heated 180C oven and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
