In need of a snack, starter or side dish?

500gm cleaned, raw prawns
1 tsp salt
1 egg
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
1 tbsp light soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
2 tbsp chopped spring onions
10 slices of thinly sliced bread with the crusts removed
4 tbsp approx of white sesame seeds
Oil for frying.

Make the prawn paste by blitzing the prawns, salt, soy, sesame oil, spring onions, ginger, and egg together to make a thick paste.
Cut each slice of bread into 3 rectangles.
Then spread the prawn paste generously on one side.
Put the sesame seeds on a plate and then press the prawn paste side into the seeds.
Heat the oil over medium heat and fry the toast paste side down first for 2/3 minutes and then turn and cook the other side until the bread is golden brown.
Drain on kitchen paper.

MY toasts look a bit rustic as I don’t think I pressed them down hard enough in the sesame seed and my fat was a little too hot, however, they did taste good, hence the title rustic prawn toasts.
