Prawn toasts

Prawn toasts



  • 10 slices white bread
  • 500g green prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tsp cornflour
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • peanut oil for frying


Remove crusts from bread and cut each slice into 4 triangles.

Place the prawn meat into food processor with the green onions, ginger, egg white, cornflour, soy sauce and pepper. Process until smooth.

Spread 1 tablespoon of this mixture on each triangle of bread. Press the toasts face down into the sesame seeds. Repeat until all are finished.

Heat the peanut oil in a saucepan or wok. Check the heat by dropping a small piece of bread in to see if it sizzles.

Fry the toasts in batches of three, face down for 1 minute and then turn for 20 seconds. Drain on paper towel.


  • As you fry these in batches you will need to make sure that your oil doesn’t get too hot or the mixture won’t cook through properly. I like to turn the heat down after the first two batches.
  • It’s best to drain these on paper towel after frying.
  • To keep warm just pop them into an oven that has been preheated to 150’C while you finish cooking.
  • You can also freeze these after frying and re-heat in the oven when you need them.
