Mix the shrimp, water chestnuts, 1 Tbsp. cornstarch, 5 Spice powder, salt, sugar, garlic if using, and whole egg (beaten lightly) in a bowl, mixing very thoroughly.
Mix the stiffly beaten egg white with cornstarch.
Brush each bread triangle with the egg white mix. Spread the shrimp mix on all the way to the edges, pressing it into the bread very lightly. Deep fry at 350 degrees F, putting the shrimp side in first. When lightly browned - this happens pretty fast - flip them over and brown the other side, which happens even faster. Check often. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Devour.

I've never eaten this but it sounds good enough to make it at home. My hubby is "gout-prone", so is no longer able to eat shellfish, but that won't stop me.
Thanks Barb. Your recipes are very inspiring. Thumbs up. Pookarina
