Ingredients
  • Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • Shrimp Toast:
  • 1 liter canola oil, or enough to deep-fry
  • 4 slices white bread, crust cut removed and cut into 16 triangles
  • 1 large clove garlic, lightly crushed with the side of a knife blade and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon peeled chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 pound rock shrimp
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
Directions
  • Heat soy sauce in a small saucepan and dissolve the brown sugar. In a small mixing bowl, make a slurry with the vinegar and cornstarch and add the slurry to the pot to thicken the sauce. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

  • Heat oil in deep fryer to 375 degrees F or follow the manufacturer's instructions for similar foods.

  • Lightly toast the bread and lay out on a work surface. Blend the garlic, ginger root, egg, cream, fish sauce and sesame oil in a food processor to make a paste. Add the rock shrimp and pulse to combine. Coat toast with shrimp mixture and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Deep-fry until golden brown and drain on paper towels. Serve with dipping sauce.
