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

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.

Fried Prawns With Cereal

This is one of OUR favourites,especially my girls. I use instant cereal to cook this dish.

12-15 big prawns
6-10 chilli padi (chopped)
2 sprig curry leaves
2 tbsp butter ( I used marjerin)
A packet of 'Instant Crispy Prawn With Cereal'
Potato/corn flour for coating
Some salt and pepper
Oil for deep frying

Clean prawns, trimp off the head , shell and tail.I used big prawns, so I halved the prawns.
Add some salt and pepper.
Coat the prawns with potato flour.
Heat up the oil for deep frying.
Deep fry the prawns until cooked.Dish up and drain
Discard oil, clean wok.
Over low heat , add 2tbsp butter/marjerin, add chilli padi and curry leaves.Stir fry untill fragrant.
Add prawns and instant cereal.Toss it up, till the cereal turn brown and crispy.
* Becareful, only use small fire , otherwise will easily get burned.
