Chinese inspired School lunch- Shrimp Toast

The kids had picked China as one of the countries for our school lunch project [ At first, I was thinking of making a noodle type dish, but then I remembered this Shrimp Toast that my mom used to make for us. My mom fried it, which of course made it extra delicious. However, by baking instead of frying, it turns out quite nice as well. Served with a salad, this meal is quite balanced and quick to eat. I enjoy dipping the toast in some Sambal Olek to add some spice to this dish.


6 slices of bread, cut diagonally

Shrimp spread:

2 cups baby shrimp

1 egg, beaten

1/4 tsp pepper

1 clove garlic, minced

1 tsp ginger, minced

1 tbsp cilantro, finely chopped

1 tbsp chives, finely chopped

1 1/2 tsp cornstarch

1 tbsp sesame oil


1. Place the bread on a baking pan and toast for about 5-6 min at 400 F, until lightly toasted.

2. While the bread is toasting, put all the other ingredients except the oil into a small food processor and blend into almost a fine paste.

3. Spread the paste on the toasted bread. Drizzle the sesame oil over the mixture.

4. Bake at 350F for about 10-12 min until shrimp is cooked.
