I love Shrimp Toast from the Chinese restaurants. Some restaurants make them realy good and some not. I love to cook and wanted to give it a try. I set out my search for a good tasting recipe. After trying several, I came up with my own! My recipe will knock your socks off! I have to stop myself from eating them before I finish my batch
In a separate bowl add diced celery, beaten egg, chopped parsley, soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, hot red pepper oil/red pepper flakes, garlic powder, Chinese five spice powder, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and white or black pepper. Mix well.
Take a large bowl and add the shrimps, scallions, ginger, garlic, and water chestnuts. Mix together to combine.
Place shrimp mixture into a food processor. Pulse a few seconds into a chunky paste.
Mix the shrimp paste with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.
Put a generous dollop of the paste onto each slice of bread and spread it evenly using the back of your spoon or spatula.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds and slice each into 4 triangles.
Once your oil is ready to fry, place a few of the shrimp breads, paste side down into the oil. Fry for roughly 2 minutes each on the shrimp side. Turn them over, when you see the edges turn a golden brown, and fry roughly for a 1 minute on the bread side. Remove them and place them onto a tray lined with paper towel to drain.
