In this recipe, I make a Prawn Chilly Fry version of the popular Chinese style Prawn Toasts. Minced pulsed Prawn or Shrimp is mixed with spices, onion, chilli, coriander egg white. Its then spread onto toast. Its decorated with a prawn that has been butterflied and then its sprinkled with some sesame seeds. This is then shallow fried in some oil - on both sides. I also have an air fried version for you!
