Cooking Steps

  • 1

    Put the prawns, Very Lazy garlic and ginger, egg white, sugar and soy in a food processor and blitz. Once a paste, stir in the spring onion and pour the mixture into a bowl. Then cover and chill for 30 mins.

  • 2

    Brush one side of each piece of bread with sesame oil. Spread the prawn mixture on top, taking it right to the edges of the bread. Brush the beaten egg carefully over the top and sides, then sprinkle liberally with sesame seeds.

  • 3

    Heat 2-3cm of oil in a sauté pan or deep frying pan until hot, and cook each piece of bread, unspread-side down for 1½ mins, then carefully turn over and cook for 1-2 mins on the prawn side or until the sesame seeds are golden and the prawn paste cooked through. Cut each piece into four triangles. Serve with soy sauce (or a sweet & sour sauce) for dipping!
