I remember having these back in Ireland with my parents as a kid in Chinese restaurants, they’re serious comfort food. Who knew bread topped with shrimp and fried was so delicious!?

Combine shrimp, egg, soy sauce, cornflour, and garlic in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until extremely finely minced and everything is evenly combined. Spread the shrimp mixture evenly over one side of each piece of bread. Add enough oil to a large saucepan so that it’s about 1 inch deep and heat to 180°C/350°f. Place the sesame seeds into a wide dish and dip the edges of the shrimp side in, to evenly coat, but leaving most of the shrimp mix exposed.
Using a slotted spoon gently place into the preheated oil and fry in batches for 2 minutes on each side until golden. Remove onto a plate lined with kitchen paper. Repeat until all the pieces are cooked.
While the toasts are frying whisk together the coconut cream, curry paste and lemon juice in a small saucepan over a medium heat, simmer for 3-4 minutes until thickened.
To serve sprinkle the toasts with the spring onions and coriander and serve alongside the sauce.
