Method

10 mins
 

For the shrimp toast, line a tray with baking paper. Combine the shrimp meat, onion, chili, egg, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and blend until a smooth paste forms. Spread the mixture onto the bread slices and top each off with some sesame seeds. Place the bread on the lined tray and freeze for at least 1 hour. 


Heat the sunflower oil in a large pan over medium heat; making sure the oil is at least 3cm deep. Carefully fry off the frozen bread slices, in batches, by placing it filling-side down in the oil first. Fry for 2 minutes until golden. Turn each slice over and fry for a further 2 minutes until crisp. Drain on kitchen paper. 



To serve, top each fried bread slice with a dollop of crème fraiche, some chopped avocado and garnish with micro herbs. 



TIP: The shrimp meat can also be replaced with prawn meat, if preferred.
