Another entree that will feed a crowd! This prawn toast is so full of flavour that just a thin spread of the prawn paste will do the trick. We love that it's a much easier alternative to a deep fried toast. We have chosen to use cooked prawns in this recipe to take out any of the guesswork about whether or not the prawn paste is cooked. If you can't get fresh prawns, tinned prawns will work well too.
