“My father made this for me while experimenting in the kitchen. It was absolutely the most delicious way to use shrimp. I think I've gotten pretty good at making this dish but it still doesn't compare to my father's! Don't be fooled by the ingredients. Most are optional and this is easy to make! Great for parties as appetizers or a main dish.”

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the shrimp, onion, water chestnuts, celery, and green onion. Stir in crabmeat, egg, parsley, sesame oil, soy sauce, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Make the dipping sauce: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, water, sesame oil, parsley, garlic powder, and sugar; set aside.
  3. In a heavy skillet, heat 2 cups oil, or enough to be 1/2 inch deep, over medium heat. Spread a thick layer of shrimp filling on one side of each slice of bread.
  4. Fry the topped bread in hot oil until golden brown and shrimp is pink, turning once. Do not let the filling sit on the bread too long or the sandwich will get soggy. Drain on paper towels and let cool for a minute. Slice diagonally and serve with dipping sauce or alone.

This was very popular at our playoff party. I only made a few changes, lightly toasted the bread before adding the shrimp so that it won't get soggy, didn't used the yellow onion, but increased the green onions and baked the toast for 5-7 minutes in a 350 degree oven instead of frying to cut down the fat. Add some red peper flakes for a little bit of heat.



Delicious! Had only king crab so I added a little mayo and grated cheddar to help bind it together. Put on butter brushed toasted french bread. Baked in the oven instead of frying. YUMM!



I made this recipe for my husband & friends. It was delicious. We enjoy the shrimp toast with lemon wedges and the sauce with the recipe. Recommended.
