Sesame Shrimp Toast

Sesame Shrimp Toast is a classic Chinese restaurant appetizer that we’ve been ordering when we are eating out for years. I never considered how it was made and I certainly never considered making it. But, now I have. Here is a great recipe for sesame shrimp toast if you are one of those who loves it as we do.


  • 8 oz. of raw, peeled shrimp
  • 1 scallion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 3 thin slices of white bread, crusts removed
  • 4 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • vegetable oil for deep frying


  • Put the shrimp and scallion in a food processor and process until finely ground.
  • Add salt, soy sauce, cornstarch, and egg white. Mix well.
  • Spread the shrimp mixture onto one side of each piece of bread.
  • Spread the sesame seeds on top of the shrimp mixture on each slice of bread, pressing firmly.
  • Cut each slice of bread into 4 equal triangles.
  • Heat oil for deep frying in a wok until almost smoking. Carefully place the triangles in the oil, coated side down, and cook for 2-3 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and serve hot.
