Thai Red Curry Prawn Toast

These moreish treats are perfect for Thai New Year

Who doesn’t love a bit of prawn toast? It’s one of our favourite dim sum, and the perfect little treat for a special occasion too!

To celebrate Songkran (Thai New Year), we’re giving our traditional prawn toast a Thai twist by incorporating the rich and fragrant flavours of red curry into that prawny topping. We use Blue Dragon’s handy red curry paste pot, which makes it super simple to get authentic Thai flavour into our cooking. For this recipe we also swap the traditional sesame seed coating for desiccated coconut in order to maximise the Thai flair.

Give this jazzed up prawn toast a go this Songkran – we bet you won’t be able to stop at one piece!

4 slices of white bread, crusts off and cut into 16 triangles

GET THE METHOD →

In a food processor, blitz together the prawns, red curry paste and egg white until you have a bitty paste.
Spread the prawn mixture evenly over the bread triangles. Pat a generous layer of coconut on top.
Heat 2cm of vegetable oil in saucepan. Test that it is the right temperature for frying by dipping in a piece of the crust from the bread. It should sizzle and bubble but not turn brown immediately.
In batches, fry the prawn toasts. Lower them into the oil prawn-side down for 1-2 minutes, then flip and fry for a further 1-2 minutes until the bread is golden and crispy. Remove onto kitchen paper or a cooling rack, then serve immediately while still hot and crunchy.
