Prawn and Fish Baked Toast with Vegetable and Cashews

Posted 2016-04-05 by finyfollow

I do not often cook vegetables but decided I wanted to try fish and prawn toast and needed something to have with it.

The prawn toast is far healthier than those served in an Asian restaurant, as they are usually deep fried whereas this one is baked. I also added prawns in with the fish to give it a slightly different taste, and the topping is far thicker than when you buy it in a restaurant.

Served together these were a very tasty, healthy combination of foods.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes (includes shelling prawns)
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 - 3 servings

For the prawn toasts
7 large raw prawns
120 g boneless white fish
¾ tbsp soy sauce
1½ tsp fish sauce
4 - 5 slices white bread
¼ cup sesame seeds
Sweet chili sauce, to serve (optional)

For the vegetable and cashews
1½ cups vegetables - I used broccoli, fresh peas, carrots and a bit of onion
¾ cup white rice
1 pkt Spring vegetable soup
About 2¼ cups water
½ cup raw cashew nuts

For the vegetable and cashews

  • Chop your vegetables.

  • Heat a bit of oil in a wok or pan and fry the cashews till they are golden.

  • Remove them with a slotted spoon and put on paper towel to drain.

  • In the same pan, put the dry rice in and cook till it turns brown, being careful not to let it burn.

  • Stir in the remaining ingredients, except the cashews.

  • Cover and cook until the rice is tender -this will take about 12 minutes for white rice. Stir a few times and check you do not need a bit more water.

  • Turn off five minutes before serving, and serve with some of the reserved cashews.
  • This could be served on its own as a main meal as it is both filling and healthy

    For the prawn and fish toast
  • This can be made while the first part of the meal is cooking, so that it will all be ready together.

  • Peel the prawns and de-vein.

  • Preheat the oven to 180°/165° fan forced and line an oven tray with baking paper.

  • Place the prawns, fish and the two sauces into a food processor and pulse until the mixture is smooth.

  • Spread part of the mixture onto one side of each piece of bread.

  • Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the shape you want....a fish shape would look good however I did not have this shape so I used hearts!.

  • Sprinkle evenly with the sesame seeds.

  • Bake in the oven for about 5 - 10 minutes or until the fish is cooked and the bread is toasted/crispy.

  • Serve with sweet chili sauce if desired.

  • I served these around the vegetable and cashew dish.
