	     All Ingredients should be prepared before you start cooking 
	     this will save time and make cooking the dish easier and
	     more enjoyable. 
	          12 fresh uncooked large shrimp 
	          1 egg 
	          2 1/2 tablespoons (37ml) cornstarch 
	          1/4 teaspoon (1ml) salt 
	          Pinch pepper 
	          3 slices sandwich bread 
	          1 hard-cooked egg yolk 
	          1 slice cooked ham (about 1 ounce or 30g) 
	          1 green onion 
	          2 cups (500ml) vegetable oil 
	   1. Remove shells from shrimp, leaving tails intact. Remove back 
	      veins from shrimp. Cut down back of shrimp with sharp knife. 
	      Gently press shrimp with fingers to flatten.
	   2. Beat 1 egg, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a small bowl until 
	      blended. Add shrimp to egg mixture and toss until shrimp are 
	      completely coated.
	   3. Remove crusts from bread. Cut each slice into quarter. Place 
	      one shrimp, cut side down, on each bread piece. Gently press 
	      shrimp to adhere to bread. Brush or rub small amount of egg 
	      mixture over each shrimp.
	   4. Cut egg yolk and ham into 1/2 inch (1.5cm) pieces. Finely chop 
	      onion. Place one piece each of egg yolk and ham and a scant 
	      1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) chopped onion on each shrimp.
	   5. Heat oil in wok over medium-high heat until it reaches 375F (190C).
	      Fry 3 or 4 shrimp-bread pieces at a time in the hot oil until 
	      golden, 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Drain on absorbent paper.
