Gluten Free Shrimp Toasts

I'd never heard of prawn toasts until I moved to the UK, but they are one of the staples of Chinese takeaways here. They're basically pieces of toast fried with prawns (shrimp) and spring onions and ginger. They're extremely easy to make and really tasty. A lot of time they are finished with sesame seeds and served with sweet chilli sauce.

Before my Coeliac Disease diagnosis, I loved prawn toasts and would it have it pretty much every time we had a Chinese meal, so finding a way to make them gluten free was top of my list and I'm so pleased with my achievement!

This is the final dish from my Amoy Chinese New Year banquet and one that I am extremely happy with! Prawn toast is perfect as an appetizer or simply as an accompaniment to a Chinese meal. You'll be shocked how easy it is to make and you'll enjoy it; trust me!
