Crispy Sesame Shrimp “Toast” recipe
Line sheet pan with parchment paper, leaving some overhanging edges. Place shrimp, egg white, scallion, and garlic in high-powered blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Spread paste in even layer over lined sheet pan. Place pan in freezer, 1 hour.
In large heavy saucepan, heat oil to 350°F over medium-high heat. While oil is heating, mix almond flour and sesame seeds in large bowl. Beat egg in separate small bowl.
Remove shrimp paste from the freezer, transfer to cutting board, and slice into triangles. Working quickly, dip each triangle into beaten egg, then into almond flour mixture, and then gently drop in hot oil.
Deep-fry “toasts” in batches, 3–5 minutes, until golden brown and crispy. Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.
