Ingredients :

8 slices of day-old bread

peanut oil for frying toasts

lettuce or arugula leaves


mint leaves

Vietnamese coriander sprigs


For Shrimp Paste -

10 oz shrimp, peeled and deveined

2 tbsp minced pork fat, or butter

1 tbsp fish sauce

2 tsp peanut oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

freshly ground pepper, to taste

1 egg white


Nuoc Cham Sauce -

1 garlic clove, peeled

1 fresh hot red pepper, seeds removed

2 tsp sugar

1/2 fresh lime

2 tbsp Vietnamese fish sauce

2 tbsp water, or to taste

Method :

Whirl all ingredients in a food processor to a soft paste - do not over-process. Or pound shrimp and pork fat or butter to a paste in a mortar and pestle, and mix with remaining ingredients.

Remove crusts, and slice bread in half lengthwise. Spread each piece with 2-3 tbsp of shrimp paste. Pour enough oil into large skillet to generously coat bottom, heat to simmering, and place toasts in pan, shrimp side down. Fry, turning once, until golden brown, adding a little more oil if necessary. Serve hot with vegetables and herbs for garnishing, and nuoc cham sauce for dipping.

Makes 16 toasts

Using a food processor or a mortar and pestle, make a paste with the garlic, chili pepper, and sugar. Squeeze in lime juice, add lime pulp, fish sauce, and water. Mix well, adding more water, a few drops at a time, if the sauce is too strong.
