  1. In a medium-large sized fry/sauté pan, over medium-high heat, add the canola oil, add the prawns and pan sear until cooked through, approximately 2 to 3 minutes total. Add 1 tbsp whole butter, squeeze 1 tbsp lime juice in the pan to finish the cooking and flavor the shrimp.
  2. Cut the loaf of bread into ½ slices, rub each slice with a clove of garlic and brush the bread with olive oil. Once brushed, toast the bread in a pre-heated 325-degree oven until light golden brown.
  3. In a blender, puree mayo ingredients together, place in an airtight container and set aside. This will last for a week.
  4. To assemble the shrimp toast, spread 1 tbsp of the kimchi mayo on each piece of toast. Place 2 shrimp on top and garnish with 1 tsp of chopped herbs (chives or scallions) and zest some lime on top.
