A tasty appetizer made with fresh shrimp on toast then fried to a golden brown. You can use any kind of bread and cut it into any desired shape.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 3/4 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 egg whites
- 4 slices whole wheat bread
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 2 cups oil for frying
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Chop and mash shrimp using a large knife. Mix in flour, egg yolks, salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites to stiff peaks and fold into the shrimp mixture.
Slice bread into 4 pieces each. Put 2 teaspoons of the shrimp mixture onto each piece and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Starting with the shrimp side down, fry for 3 minutes. Turn, and fry for another 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oil, drain on paper towels and serve warm.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
