Most likely of Chinese origin, shrimp toasts have found their way into other Asian kitchens. The Vietnamese use French baguettes and often serve the crispy toasts alongside their favorite table condiment -- fish sauce and lime dipping sauce.

DIRECTIONS
Prepare the dipping sauce; set aside.


Cut the bread on the diagonal into slices 1/2 inch wide. Set aside.


In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine the garlic, shallots and ginger; process until finely minced. Add the shrimp, sugar, salt, pepper and cornstarch; process until finely chopped but not puréed.


Spread about 1 tablespoon of the shrimp mixture evenly over each slice of bread; smooth the tops. Sprinkle the tops evenly with the sesame seeds, pressing them lightly into the paste. Place the slices, shrimp side up, on a baking sheet and cover with plastic wrap until ready to fry.


In a wok or deep frying pan, pour in oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches and heat to 350 degrees F on a deep-frying thermometer. Carefully add the slices, shrimp side down, and fry until golden brown on the underside, about 2 minutes. Turn over and continue to fry until golden brown on the second side, about 1 minute longer.


Using a slotted spoon, transfer the toasts to paper towels to drain. Arrange on a serving dish and serve warm with the dipping sauce.
