Prawn toasts. made in TMX and baked in Air Fryer.
« on: June 02, 2014, 06:07:51 am »
Love these, as they are so versatile.  Can be served as a nibble with drinks, entree,  main meal with salad, part of Chinese banquet,  or with soup.   Although Prawns are the traditional base,  firm white fish could be used.  A simple soy sauce or sweet chilli can be served with them.  They can also be cut into fingers, rounds or triangles.
They are traditionally shallow fried but to reduce the amount of oil , I have sprayed them with Rice bran oil,  and baked them for 5 minutes in the Air Fryer.  
I have used Jill Duplex's prawn recipe and have adapted it to TMX.

Ingredients
12/14 slices of white sandwich Supermarket bread. Stale is best.  Important that it is not too thick as needs to be thin to crisp. Edges trimmed.
500g green (raw) prawn meat.
1 clove of garlic
3 to 4 rings of fresh green ginger,  should be approximately 1 Tablespoon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cornflour
1 Tablespoon of Chinese rice wine
1 egg white .
1 teaspoon of sesame oil
2 Tablespoons of white sesame seeds
Can of Rice bran Oil or oil for shallow frying.

Method
Add ginger ,garlic , cornflour, salt to TMX bowl and mix on speed 7/7 seconds, scrape down.
Add egg white , sesame oil  and Rice wine,  mix, speed 7 for 7 seconds. Check to see that ginger and garlic are very finely chopped.
Add Prawn meat and press TURBO button twice.  Check that there are no whole prawns in the mix.
This can be made the day before required.  Keep covered in refrigerator.

Lay trimmed bread on bench and spray lightly with oil.
Turn slices over.
Place 1 rounded dessertspoon on Prawn mix on each slice and spread to the edges of each slice.
Sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Spray prawns lightly with oil.
Bake in a 200o pre-heated Air Fryer for 5 minutes.  (the time will depend on how thick the paste is spread.)
I baked full slices and then cut them.  
2 full slices fit into wire basket.
Can bake several lots and keep warm while cooking more.

If you haven't an Air fryer you could preheat a heavy frying pan to hot and brown the base of the bread and then finish off in the oven under the grill.  Being careful not to over cook the Prawn mix.

JD - I made these for myself using just 2 slices of bread and 120g prawns Chookie.  I just scaled everything else down with it and I think I got it right. There was enough for 2 tablespoons of mixture on each slice of bread (I used Wonderwhite and they are quite big slices).  Thanks Chookie, I enjoyed having these for the first time in years. Oops I just realised I forgot the sesame seeds.

I don't think I have ever had prawn toasts. I will have to try them. Thanks for making them healthy Chookie.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

What temperature did you use - I wasn't sure so I started off with 5 minutes @ 180o then added 1 minute @ 200o.

Judy,  I baked them at 200.  Did yours go crunchy underneath ?  Good to know the recipe scales down.   I think the cheap crappy Supermarket bread might be better.   I think Wonderwhite might be too soft.

Yes they were crunchy underneath Chookie.  I don't buy home brand bread but the Wonderwhite worked just fine.

I don't like buying bread.  Most is horrible.  I was very careful what I selected as Jill Dupliex insisted on cheap sliced Supermarket bread.   Not the very cheap stuff that is like polystyrene .  However next time I make these I am going to slice up one of my bread sticks into round disks.

Good idea Chookie, it would be easily sliced thinly.  Me cutting home made bread into even thin slices - it would only happen with bread sticks or my sourdough focaccia which I have in the freezer but I've already pre-sliced that and it would be too thick for this recipe.
