Shrimp and Chicken Toast

It's Friday again, time to gain a pound or two, LOL! Let's all join Gollum (aka Michael) at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ for permanently hosting the potluck! I am sure, Gollum will have something pretty and delicious to share with us. Join everybody on her list and check out their contributions too.
For my part I would like to show you how to prepare a shrimp/chicken toast step by step. This is one hors d' oeuvres dish that my Thai friend finally taught me how to make, after 2 years of asking her and my hubby pushing me to ask. It is his favorite appetizer and snack.
First, I went to my raised vegetable garden to cut some cilantro.
Prepare everything you need. I forgot to include an egg in the picture but you also need 1 whole egg in addition to the chicken, shrimp, onion leaves, bread and garlic salt and cooking oil.
Use equal amount of chicken and shrimp and pretty much an equal amount of cilantro and onion leaves too.
Chop the cilantro and onion leaves in small pieces.

Oops, I forgot to upload a picture of me chopping the chicken and shrimp (another senior moment..LOL!) but I am sure you can imagine it. Chop them into small pieces just like the picture below. Mix all and add 1 egg. Add salt and pepper to taste, about a tsp of each. Mix well.
Slice the bread about 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
Heat some cooking oil (I use vegetable oil but any will do) until it is very hot. Spoon the mixture into one side of the bread. It will stick to the bread.
Drop into the HOT oil with the chicken/shrimp mixture faced down.
Cook until brown and then flip and cook the other side. You can use a deep fryer but you probably will still have to flip them cause they have a tendency to float.
This picture should have come before the one on top. LOL! It's late and I should probably go to bed but I wanted to load these pictures because I am going on a shopping trip tomorrow with my friend and that usually takes all day.
Blot the excess oil into a paper towel.
Serve with sweet and sour sauce. Enjoy!
Thanks for coming and many thanks to Gollum for hosting another fun party.
