Thank goodness it's Deevapali today, I finally had time to make these shrimp toasts! I have been yearning for public holidays and weekends since I stepped into my new job. I wonder if I should be happy that at least I managed to slot out some time for my kitchen or just moan over the fact that I am not making much foodies.

These Shrimp toasts were truly AWESOME! I bet you can munched on them non-stop once you started. It'll be good to snacked on them when they are pipping hot but well, really greasy I would say. They can be eaten without any sauce but Prince Charming likes them with Tabasco sauce and I like them with some mayonnaise. They make a good party appetiser and I can foresee making them for my Christmas party. Tee hee hee...

Wow, my girl loves this and she had this last wed courtesy of a mum at swim class, even though she doesn't like prawns. My friend also added egg white to the prawn mixture. :) I'm so going to try this. But a little fattening hehe. Princess loved it so much she ate a whole lot. She also made them into triangles like you did. :D

Hee hee... you daughter has great taste buds! These shrimp toasts are not only easy but really delicious.

I didn't add egg whites but I added corn flour to bring out the "sweet" taste ;) My hubby likes food that are slightly sweeter so I added sugar too! Extra calories :(

I wanted to make them into moon-shaped but couldn't find an appropriate tool! Hahah~

Haha, I like sweet savoury food too. Is he peranakan? Haha. I hear it's a peranakan trait to like sweet/savoury foodstuff.
