Shrimp toast, that seems rather proper and Western, is indeed a really Chinese thing. With origins as an appetiser in a northern Chinese range of Shandong, shrimp toast takes shrimp puree, slathered easily onto white bread, and low boiled whole.

This plate eventually found a approach a thousand miles south to Hong Kong, where it’s turn a tack of low sum. It’s boiled shrimp on boiled bread, unfit not to like. While my Cantonese brethren like adding a dab of Miracle Whip to a toast, I’m perpetually a softie for Kewpie mayonnaise. Here’s a plate that’s remarkably elementary to make, and elementary to make in vast quantities.
