Healthy Version of Sesame Prawn Toasts
Our son Jeremy loves Sesame Prawn Toasts but I don't like him to eat them because the restaurant and commercial varieties are deep fried items and therefore far too unhealthy from a fat point of view. I decided to try my own version which involves spray oil only and being cooked in the frying pan. The recipe makes about 30 - 40 prawn toasts so I tend to prepare them in advance and freeze them. I just remove as many as is needed at the time, defrost them for a few minutes and then pop them into a hot oven to crisp up.
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Quantity: 30 - 40 portions

500 gm green (raw) prawn flesh
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons fresh ginger
1 dessertspoon light soy sauce
1 spring onion
2 level tablespoons cornflour
1 and 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
10 slices bread, crusts removed
1/2 cup sesame seeds
Place first ten ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Spray underside of each slice of bread with spray oil.
Spread mixture evenly on the top sides of the 10 slices of bread. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top of the prawn mixture making the coating quite thick. Spray the top of the slices with oil. Cut the slices into 4 triangles or 3 finger shapes.
"Dry fry" the prawn toasts on both sides in a frying pan until golden brown on both sides.
Makes 30 - 40 portions.
If you don't have a food processor you will need to chop the ingredients very finely. It will take a while to do the chopping but the prawn toasts will still be successful.
