Gluten Free Sesame Prawn Toast

Most Of The Ingredients
Nine days since my last post, where does time fly off to? Had a lovely four day weekend just gone which started off with the trip to Harry Potter Land! the Harry Potter Studio Tour which was just magical and fun and, well magical. Updated gluten free information here. On the way home we encountered the heaviest rain I think I've ever known, certainly the heaviest I've been out in. It was as though buckets of water were being poured from just above our heads.

So yes, bit slack on the blogging front but time for a recipe to be shared.

I'm going to start of by saying it's possible that I could have made these a bit... tidier but they were dinner and I was really hungry, plus first time I've ever made them but I nailed it in terms of taste. Also, in case you hadn't noticed by now, presentation is not my strong point. I'm a bit haphazard.

I used trusty DS Gluten Free Ciabattas for this which made some of the toasts a bit thicker than others but you could use any gluten free slices of bread providing it doesn't fall apart (if such a thing exists).

To Make 12 Prawn Toasts


10 Raw King Prawns
4 Spring Onions (just the white and light green parts)
1 Teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 Tablespoon Tamari Soy Sauce
1 Tablespoon Fish Sauce (Squid Brand used here)
2 DS Gluten Free White Ciabattas
Sesame Seeds
Ground Nut Oil


  • Devein the prawns and roughly chop the spring onions
  • Put the prawns, spring onions, sesame oil, soy sauce and fish sauce into a mixer and blitz until a smooth paste has formed

  • Put a handful of sesame seeds onto a plate and dip each prawn toast into them, press the seeds into the prawn mix with your fingers

  • Heat a large frying pan on high with enough oil to cover the bottom
  • Place the prawn toasts sesame seed side down into the oil and shallow fry for 3 minutes
  • Turn the prawn toasts over and cook for another 3 minutes

  • Remove from the pan and put on kitchen paper to drain any excess oil
You could also deep fry these for around 2 minutes or until golden.

These were lovely and crisp on the outside with a soft prawn center, I'll definitely be making them again. If you're wondering why the recipe says for 12 when there are only 10 in the pan it's because I had a slice of ciabatta over due to using more topping on the first two than I needed, so I ran out.

Next time I make these I'm going to attempt a healthier option (shock horror, I know), I plan on grilling one side of the ciabatta slices then adding the prawn topping to the untoasted sides and then grilling those. See how it works out.

It's almost the weekend which absolutely deserves a yay! New Burger recipe coming soon.
