The Easiest Shrimp Toast

This is the easiest, quick , simple and yummy snack.
I made deep fried and bake version.
The deep fried version is the best.It has a crispy crust, and chewy shrimp paste.We enjoy this very much.
For the bake version, not nice at all.The bread not crispy but hard, the prawns, yuks.....I advice not to do this bake version.

Ingredients :
200 gm shrimp ,peeled,
6 slices of white bread
1/2 tsp white pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cornstarch
Oil for frying

Method:
Clean the shrimp. Pat it dry.
Chop /smash /pound the shrimp to become paste form.
Add salt , pepper and cornflour, mix well.
Remove crust from the bread and cut into square.
Sprinkle some cornflour onto each square of bread.
Spread evenly the shrimp paste onto each piece of bread.
Sprinkle some sesame seeds.
Heat the oil in a wok.
Place a few of the shrimp breads, paste side down into the oil.
Fried roughly 1 minutes for each side.
Dish up and drain, place them onto a tray lined with kitchen towel.
Serve immediately.
 These are the baked version......not nice at all.
