Magical.Palate's picture
Ingredients
  White bread slices 12
  Ground pork 1⁄4 Pound
  Medium raw shrimp 1⁄4 Pound, shelled and deveined
  Chopped green onion 1 Tablespoon (Including Tops)
  Serrano/Jalapeno chile 1 , minced
  Egg whites 2
  Chopped cilantro leaves 2 Teaspoon (Chinese Parsley)
  Chopped cilantro leaves 1 Teaspoon
  Minced garlic 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Black pepper 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Deep Frying)
  Cilantro leaves 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)
Directions

1. Trim the crusts from the bread and cut each slice in half diagonally.
2. In a food processor, combine the paste ingredients and process to make a coarse paste. Spread the paste about 1/4 inch thick on one side of each bread triangle. If you wish, you may place the triangles in a single layer in a baking pan and cover and refrigerate them for up to 2 hours.
3. Set a wok in a ring stand and add oil to a depth of about 2 inches. Heat over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 360°. Add the triangles paste side down, a few at a time; cook for 1 1/2 minutes. Turn them and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. The edges will be curled like furled ribbon. Lift the toasts out and drain them on paper towels. Keep them warm in a 200° oven while cooking the rest. Arrange the toasts on a flat basket and garnish them with cilantro leaves.
