Prawn and Pork Toast
Yield: 24 pieces
1 Tablespoon Chinese dried prawns
1 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves and stems *
2 cloves garlic
125g (4 ozs) cooked peeled prawns (Shrimp)**
500g ( 1 lb) lean minced pork
1 tablespoon fish sauce
6 large slices of day old bread ( white)
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Finely chop the dried prawns, coriander and garlic in a food processor. Add fresh prawns and pork and grind to a paste like consistency. Season with fish sauce and add the egg. Process until thoroughly mixed.
Spread mixture evenly over bread. Cut crusts from bread and cut into four triangles.
Heat oil for deep frying. Fry only 4 or 5 toasts at a time. Slide into the oil, filling downwards, and fry until golden, then flip over and cook the other side briefly. Remove on a wire or perforated strainer and drain on absorbent kitchen paper.
Arrange on shredded lettuce with a small bowl of sweet and sour sauce in the centre. Serve hot.
* Coriander is the same as cilantro.
** Shrimp and prawns are one and the same thing.
