  • 200

    g peeled shrimp, deveined

  • Salt

  • 2

    small cloves garlic, minced

  • 1

    egg, separate white and yolk

    tbsp chopped scallion

  • 2

Directions

Pre-heat the oven to 120 celsius. Trim the crust from the bread slices and then cut each bread into 4 small squares. Place the squares on a baking sheet and place into the middle rack to bake. Bake for 25 – 30 mins until the toast has dehydrated, crispy but not browned. Remove and set aside to cool. Increase oven temperature to 180 celsius. Refresh the shrimps by applying a generous amount of salt. Toss to coat. Rinse immediately until clean. Drain and pat dry. Mix in garlic, pinch of salt, egg white, corn flour, black pepper, sugar and oil. Combine well. Transfer the mixture into a food processor and pulse into a coarse paste. Stir in the chopped scallions. Spread melted butter on a baking sheet. Using an icing spatula, spread a layer of shrimp paste on top of a crisp toast. The amount spread should be as thick as the toast to balance out the toast/paste ratio and ensure the paste cover all corners. Arrange the toasts on the baking sheet. In a small bowl, prepare the egg wash by mixing the egg yolk and water together. Brush the top of the toasts. Bake for 10 – 15 mins, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 mins before serving.
