I love the shrimp toast I get at my local oriental restaurant, and wanted to make it at home. I asked the server if she knew how to make it and she sent the chef out to tell me. I tried it today, and it tasted just like at the restaurant. Hope you enjoy this one too!!

Just finished the second batch, the first one was such a hit my wife requested them again the next day. I found that if I put them in the frig for about 15 minutes before frying they were easier to handle. I also discovered that I can make them ahead of time and put them in the frig and then place them up on a cookie sheet and heat them in a 400 oven for 20 minutes, they come out perfect. I can see that I wll be making these alot! Thanks.

This is as close as you can get to really authentic Shrimp Toast. Made it twice already and it is terrific. I used my food processor to mince the shrimp into a paste, otherwise followed the recipe. Will make again and again. Thank you Blue

I LOVE THESE TOO! It's dim sum and not many places have even HEARD of Shrimp Toast! This is a great recipe.. my old additions are chopped green onions and a Tbsp oyster sauce. Thanks for sharing!!
