Method

  1. Step 1

    Place the ginger and garlic in a food processor and process until a smooth paste forms. Add the prawns and pulse until a coarse paste forms.
  2. Step 2

    Combine the prawn mixture, spring onion, cornflour, soy sauce, white pepper, salt, sesame oil and egg white in a medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 mins or until firm.
  3. Step 3

    Trim the ends of the French stick and cut remaining bread into 2cm-thick slices. Spoon 1 tbs prawn mixture over each slice, spreading to the edges.
  4. Step 4

    Combine white and black sesame seeds in a shallow bowl. Dip each piece of bread, prawn-side down, in the sesame seeds to coat evenly.
  5. Step 5

    Pour enough vegetable oil into a medium frying pan to come 3cm up side of the pan. Heat over medium-high heat until oil reaches 180°C (when oil is ready, a cube of bread turns golden in 15 secs). Cook the bread, in batches, prawn-side down, for 5 mins or until sesame seeds are golden and prawn mixture is cooked through. Turn and cook for 1-2 mins or until golden underneath. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
  6. Step 6

    Transfer prawn toasts to a serving platter. Sprinkle with chives.

Recipe tip

Serve with mayonnaise and chilli paste.
