Sesame prawn toasts

From Cookipedia

Crunchy, succulent, everyones favourite Chinese starter. The only problem is that they are not very good for you if you are watching your cholesterol intake. Anything that contains lard and is then fried, can't be great for you. Anyway, it's probably worth being naughty now and again.
