How to Make It
  1. Put the shrimp, cornstarch, scallions, ginger, soy sauce, sesame oil, and egg white into a food processor, and process to a fairly smooth paste.
  2. Cut each piece of bread into quarters and spread with a little of the shrimp paste, being sure to go right up to the edges and mounding it up slightly so that all the paste is used up.
  3. Heat a 2 in (5 cm) depth of oil in a large, heavy-bottomed frying pan or deep fryer. It is ready when a crust of spare bread, dropped in, sizzles and starts to turn golden brown. Spread the sesame seeds out on a plate. Press each piece of bread, shrimp-side down, into the sesame seeds, so each is topped with a thin layer.
  4. Fry the shrimp toasts in small batches, sesame seed side down, for 1-2 minutes, until becoming golden brown, then carefully turn them over and fry for another minute. Drain the cooked toasts on a plate lined with paper towels while you fry the remaining pieces. Serve hot.
