    Vino Girl's Note:

    From Food & Wine, March 2006. I avoid anything fried, but this is done so briefly that there isn't much greasiness. I am hoping that maybe with some experimentation I can avoid that step altogether - maybe put the toasts under the broiler for a minute?

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 450°.
    2. 2
      In a food processor, combine half of the shrimp with the butter and process until pureed.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, toss the rest of the shrimp with the water chestnuts, scallions, wine, soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and sugar.
    4. 4
      Blend in the shrimp butter.
    5. 5
      Spread about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the shrimp mixture on each baguette slice.
    6. 6
      In a large skillet, heat 1/8 inch of vegetable oil until shimmering.
    7. 7
      Put the sesame seeds in a small bowl. Dip each shrimp toast in the sesame seeds to coat the shrimp mixture.
    8. 8
      Fry about 8 toasts at a time over moderately high heat, shrimp side down, until the shrimp mixture turns pink, about 25 seconds.
    9. 9
      Using tongs, transfer the toasts to a large rimmed baking sheet, shrimp side up.
    10. 10
      Repeat with the remaining toasts, adding more vegetable oil to the pan as needed.
    11. 11
      Bake the toasts for about 5 minutes, or until the shrimp mixture is cooked through.
    12. 12
      Serve hot.
