When I was little, my Mami who I call Aunty Mummy would especially make this dish for me whenever I visited her house for a meal. I would love it ?

In the recent years I haven’t had prawn toast and was missing it. Read up on a few recipes and made it today. When my daughter took a bite, her expression took me back to the days when I would hog at my aunts house.

Presenting crispy Sesame Prawn toast. Dunk it with a dip of your choice and ur in heaven.
