  1. Put the prawns into the blender with the garlic, shallot, ginger and sugar. Press the coarse chop programme until you have a paste. Season.
  2. Cut each slice of bread into four triangles and carefully spread the prawn mixture evenly over each piece, scatter over sesame seeds.
  3. Pour oil into a deep pan to a depth of 4cm and heat, test the temperature by dropping in a crust of the bread which should sizzle immediately.
  4. Add three to four shrimp toasts, coated side down and fry until golden, turn over and allow that side to become golden. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain excess oil on kitchen paper.
  5. Serve with a dipping sauce.
