Leeann Chin Shrimp Toast - Original Recipe

Top Review by Ilovemy4kids

The batter was a little runny, usually it should be more paste-like so it would not drip off the bread. Next time, I will use 2 tablespoons of water instead of the 1/4 cup. My son likes his a little sweeter, so I increased the sugar to 2 teaspoons. The batter fried up real light and crispy, very much like that of a tempura, so I think, it can be fried on its own like fritters. Very delicious. Thank you for sharing.
