If you've never made prawn toast from scratch before, then this is your sign to give it a go! It's full of flavour and crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside!
The Prawn Toast Filling
This dish is not exhausting on the ingredients list. The only things you need for this tasty filling are:
- Raw prawns
- Soy sauce
- Egg white
Simply combine the ingredients together either by chopping up the prawns really small and smashing them into a paste, or you can use a hand blender to ensure they are well combined.
Let's Get Cooking
Once you've sliced your bread into squares and laid down a dollop of the prawn filling into the middle of the two pieces of bread, coat the outside in the remaining egg yolk and a mixture of black and white sesame seeds.

I set myself a challenge to explore and share sandwiches from around the world. Why? Because there is an abundance of sandwiches on this earth with their own unique fillings, bread type, and condiments. From the Francesinha in Portugal to Vada Pan in India, sandwiches are a way for us to encase flavours that we love in order to enjoy them wherever we may be.

The Best Prawn Toast Recipe
- 8 large raw prawns
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- ½ teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 egg white (keep the yolk for later)
- 1 teaspoon cornstarch
- 6 pieces of thick white bread
- 1 egg yolk (leftover)
- 1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds

- Finely chop or smash the prawns with your knife to make a paste. Add them to a bowl.
- To the bowl, add your chopped garlic, sugar, soy sauce, salt, pepper, egg white (keep egg yolk for later), and cornstarch. Mix until thoroughly combined. You could blend the mixture to make it a super smooth paste!
- Get your bread and cut them into 6 equal squares.
- Place a third of the prawn mixture onto one piece of bread and cover with another piece. Use an angled spatula to press any overflowing prawn mixture back into the sandwich. Repeat this step for the other two sandwiches.
- Drop the egg yolk onto a plate and whisk. Coat the sandwiches in the egg yolk.
- Place the black and white sesame seeds onto a plate and dip the sandwiches onto the seeds covering both sides.
- Pour the oil into a frying pan (around 1 inch deep) and put on medium heat.
- Once the oil is ready, place in your prawn toast.
- Fry for 2 mins and then fry on the other side for a further 1 minute or until golden.
- Remove the prawn toast onto a plate with some kitchen towel to soak up the oil. Then serve up and enjoy!
