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!

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.
- 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
