READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Manami

Deep-fried prawn toast is a favorite Bangkok street food. These are baked; for ease of preparation and a reduced fat content. Make ahead for a flavor-filled evening. A Touch of Thai web site.

I had high hopes, but I wasn't thrilled with the outcome. I used frozen shrimp and I didn't squeeze enough water toasts got soggy. I made the mix in advance and baked them the next night. The flavor was good, but I didn't care for the consistency. I doubt I make this again.
