Why seafood makes the perfect party dish

If you’re looking for party dishes that will wow your guests, why not consider seafood recipes?

Seafood always feels luxurious, so it’s perfect for a dinner party or as an alternative at barbies.

High in vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids, seafood is as much a healthy choice as a tasty one!

And you can easily source the ingredients in your home delivery of seafood.

Sesame Prawn Toast

Prawn toast is a Chinese starter that is best eaten straight away – when it’s hot, crisp and simply delicious!



  1. Roughly chop the prawns, ginger, garlic, spring onions and chilli. Then put them into a food processor with the egg and a dash of soy sauce and sesame oil. Combine until they form a paste. Add a small amount of rice flour if the mixture is too liquid.
  2. Spread the mixture over the bread slices. Put the sesame seeds in a bowl and dip each bread slice in, prawn mixture side down so that the seeds stick.
  3. Cut each bread slice into four triangles.
  4. Heat the oil in a pan and place each prawn toast into the oil with a fish slice, sesame seeds facing downwards. Cook for around 3 minutes or until golden brown. Then turn them over for another 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Once cooked, remove each prawn toast from the oil and rest on kitchen paper. Serve with sweet chilli sauce.
