Sesame shrimp toasts

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
6 ounces Cooked peeled medium-size shrimp, thawed if frozen
1 \N Piece ginger root, peeled, grated (3/4\")
1 \N Garlic clove, crushed
2 teaspoons Cornstarch
1 \N Egg white
3 pinches Five Spice Powder
\N \N Salt to taste
\N \N Fresh ground pepper to taste
4 \N Thin slices white bread, crusts removed
3 tablespoons Sesame seeds
\N \N Vegetable oil for shallow frying
\N \N Green onion daisies

Drain shrimp well on paper towels.

Mince shrimp finely. In a bowl, mix shrimp with ginger, garlic and cornstarch. Lightly whisk egg white with a fork (just enough to make frothy) and add to shrimp. Stir in Five Spice Powder, salt and pepper; mix well.

Press shrimp mixture evenly and firmly onto slices of bread. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and press on firmly. Heat ¾" oil in a large skillet. Lower slices of bread, shrimp-side down, into hot oil and fry 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Keep slices immersed in oil.

Drain on paper towels. Cut into fingers and garnish with green onion daisies.
