       Title: Shrimp Toast
  Categories: Seafood, Oriental, Wok
       Yield: 4 servings
  
       2    Water chestnuts
     1/2 lb Shrimp, cleaned & deveined
            Salt
            Pepper
     1/2 sm Onion
       1 tb Corn starch
       1    Egg
       8 sl Bread (crusts removed)
            Oil for deep frying
  
   1. Dice onion, water chestnuts, and shrimp together. Mince until fine.
   Place in small bowl. Add egg, salt, pepper, and corn starch. Mix
   thoroughly. Spread in a thin layer on slices of bread.
   
   2. Pour oil into a wok, halfway up. Turn heat on to highest point.
   When you think oil is sufficiently heated, take a bread crust and
   test it to see if it is up to the proper temperature. If bread crust
   readily browns to a golden colour then oil is ready. If bread crust
   fails to brown, then oil is not ready yet. If bread crust turns to a
   dark brown, then shut heat off and allow oil to cool at least 5
   minutes before turning burner back on. Be sure and retest oil before
   deep frying shrimp toast.
   
   3. Place a slice of bread with the shrimp mixture face down in the
   hot oil and deep fry about 3 minutes until golden brown colour. Turn
   bread and fry reverse side. Remove to paper toweling to drain excess
   oil. Repeat procedure until all slices are done.
   
   4. Cut slices of shrimp toast into strips or triangles. Serve
   immediately.
   
   NOTE: Very nice to serve for after theatre snack. Shrimp can be
   minced and mixed ahead of time. Deep frying can be done at last
   minute.
