Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 4 scallions, finely sliced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, grated on a microplane grater
  • 1 teaspoon ginger grated on microplane
  • 1 tablespoon of Wassi’s Florida Vintage Sunshine
  • 8 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed, split into 16 triangles
  • 1/2 cup toasted sesame seeds (optional)
  • 2 quarts peanut, vegetable, or canola oil
  • Kosher salt (optional)

Preparation:

Directions

Combine shrimp, egg, soy sauce, scallions, cornstarch, cilantro, ginger, sesame oil, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until extremely finely minced. Alternatively, chop shrimp by hand with a knife until extremely finely minced, then fold in remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.

Spread mixture evenly over one side of each piece of bread. Dip shrimp side into sesame seeds to coat if desired.

Heat oil in a wok or Dutch oven to 325°F (use a Thermopen). Carefully transfer half of toasts to the oil, shrimp side-down. Cook until golden brown, about 2 minutes, adjusting flame as necessary to maintain heat, then carefully flip toast and cook until second side is golden brown, about 1 minute longer. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining toasts. Season with salt and serve immediately. Try dipping in BBQ sauce or sweet chili sauce.
