- In a bowl chop together the prawns with the butter to form a paste and add all the other ingredients, except the sesame seeds, oil and the bread.
- Spread the sesame seeds evenly on a plate, spread the prawn paste on one side of each slice of bread, then press down on to the seeds.
- Heat the oil in a frying pan until medium- hot, fry 2-3 slices of the sesame bread at a time, cook each side for 2 minutes.
