Sesame Prawn Toast - Baby-Led Weaning (BLW)


These Sesame Prawn Toasts are great as a snack or a starter!

Note: Be careful when introducing seafood to babies due to allergies.


150g prawns, shelled and de-veined

1 clove of garlic, crushed

1 egg white

1 teaspoon of cornflour

1 spring onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon sesame oil

Small pinch of white pepper

100g sesame seeds (white, black or mixture of both)

3 slices of bread, crusts cut off


  1. Place all of the ingredients except of the sesame seeds and bread into a blender/food processor and blend until they form a paste.

  2. Take the bread and spread the paste on top of each slice. Cut across each diagonal into 4 triangles (or use a cookie cutter to cut into fun shapes!).

  3. Spread the sesame seeds onto a plate and place the bread prawn paste side down onto the seeds so that they stick to the paste.

  4. Heat a little oil in a pan over a high heat and toast the sesame/prawn breads for 3 minutes or until golden and crispy on each side.

  5. Serve as a snack or starter!

VEGETARIAN TWIST - substitute the prawn and egg for firm tofu.
