Found this recipes years ago (don't know where it originated) and everytime I make it, people can't get enough of it. They will crowd around in the kitchen waiting for the next batch to come out, so BEWARE!
- 8 ounces cooked peeled shrimp
- 1 small leek
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 egg white, beaten
- 3 slices white bread, crusts removed
- 4 tablespoons sesame seeds, optional
- oil, for deep-frying
- Dice shrimp and leek (or you can use scallions) very finely.
- (Could use a food processor) Mix in salt, soy sauce, cornstarch and egg white.
- Spread mixture onto one side of each slice of bread.
- (Can add seasme seeds at this point if you like) Press down well.
- Cut each slice of bread into four equal triangles.
- Heat oil in pan at least 1/2 inch in depth.
- until almost smoking.
- Carefully place triangles in the oil coated side down and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
- Flip over and cook for 1 minute.
- Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
The name says it all - these were definitely "to die for"! We literally could not get enough. Next time I make these I'm going to have to double or triple the recipe. I did add one small clove of crushed garlic to the shrimp mixture because I love garlic, but this would be great even without it. Other than the garlic I made this exactly as directed and was extremely pleased. Thanks for a great addition to my appetizer recipes.
These are awesome!!!! I didn't use the sesame seeds because I didn't have them on hand, and it still turned out WONDERFUL and everyone raved about these. This little appitizer is very easy to make and put together. I will definitely add this to my "keeper" list. By the way, everyone asked for the recipe. Thanks so much for sharing Deb K...this is a winner.
De-lish! Plopped sesame seeds on top and let them fry until golden. Served with lemon/ginger preserves and wasabi/lime/mustard as dipping sauces. I put the whole thing together in my food processor (I used leeks & a tad more salt)with chopping blade and was able to get enough shrimp topping to use 6 slices of bread (double the recipe). Glad I got extras out because they went like wild. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe, debk. This is some good stuff.
