Pacific Paradise Shrimp Toast Sandwich

Prep: 15 Minutes Cook: 10 Minutes Serves: 2 Submitted by:


1/3 cup finely chopped pineapple
1/3 cup sweet Thai chili sauce
4 slices King's Hawaiian Sweet Sliced Bread
1/2 pound Peeled uncooked shrimp
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2 tablespoons chopped scallion
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
1 tablespoon Fish Sauce
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 large egg white
Salt and white pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more as needed
1/2 cup mixed spring greens


Step 1
Mix together pineapple and chili sauce and set aside until needed.

Step 2
Lightly toast the bread slices and cut off the crusts.

Step 3
Place the shrimp, cilantro, scallions, ginger, fish sauce, sugar, and egg white in a food processor and pulse until the mixture forms a rough paste. Season to taste with salt and white pepper.

Step 4
Spread an even layer of shrimp paste on each slice of bread and sprinkle with sesame seeds, pressing lightly to adhere.

Step 5
Melt 2 Tbs. butter in a large non-stick skillet and fry the bread in batches, shrimp-side down, about 2 minutes, or until the shrimp is cooked through. Flip toasts and saute briefly, about 1 minute, to crisp the other side. Add additional butter to the skillet as needed.

Step 6
Divide the greens between 2 slices of toast and top with remaining toasts. Cut sandwiches in half diagonally and serve with pineapple dipping sauce.
