Shrimp 🍤 Toast

Super easy to make and SO delicious! I’m making Shrimp de Jonghe for dinner & decided to use some of that 🍤 for our favorite appetizer.


uncooked shrimp peeled, deveined and 5 waterchestnuts or equivalent celery minced

1 teaspoon ginger root finely minced

1 egg lightly beaten

1½ teaspoons cornstarch

1 teaspoon sherry

½ teaspoon salt

dash pepper

4 slices white bread

oil for deep frying


mix shrimp, ginger, water chestnuts with beaten egg, corn starch, sherry, salt and pepper. Blend well. Trim crusts off bread. Spread shrimp mixture evenly over bread and then slice into 4 squares or 4 triangles. To prevent knife from sticking during the spreading, dip blade 1st in cold water. Heat oil to smoking. Place bread shrimp side down on a slotted spoon; then gently lower into oil. Reduce heat slightly. Deep fry til golden brown. Drain on paper toweling.

* I don’t typically have white bread at home so I substituted some bakery sliced Vienna.
