Best Shrimp Toast EVER!!

Cheryl Jordan


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

How to Make Best Shrimp Toast EVER!!


  1. Preheat oil to 350
  2. Lay your bread slices on a tray.
  3. 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.
  4. Take a large bowl and add the shrimps, scallions, ginger, garlic, and water chestnuts. Mix together to combine.
  5. Place shrimp mixture into a food processor. Pulse a few seconds into a chunky paste.
  6. Mix the shrimp paste with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.
  7. Put a generous dollop of the paste onto each slice of bread and spread it evenly using the back of your spoon or spatula.
  8. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and slice each into 4 triangles.
  9. 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.
  10. Serve with Sweet Chili sauce.
