Cooking time:

Serves: 4


16 large shrimp or prawns
1 egg
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Dash of salt and pepper
4 slices bread
1 green onion
vegetable oil


Take the shells off the shrimp and cut a slit down the back of each shrimp to devein. You can either remove the tails or leave them there for a nice presentation. Beat egg and add cornstarch, salt and pepper. Toss in the shrimp and coat thoroughly in the egg mixture. Take the bread slices and cut off the crust. Then cut bread into four quarters per slice. Put one shrimp on each bread quarter and press down gently. Brush a little of the leftover egg mixture onto each shrimp. Finely chop the green onion and sprinkle a few pieces over each shrimp. Heat oil in a frypan or wok and cook four at a time on medium heat until nice and golden. Drain on paper towels.
