Toast muffin halves just enough to give light crispness; do not brown.
Tear each muffin half in two.
Mix together egg, cornstarch, soy sauce, and sugar until smooth.
Stir in shrimp.
Spread shrimp mixture evenly over 12 muffin quarters.
Pour corn oil into heavy 3-quart saucepan or deep fryer, filling no more than 1/3 full.
Heat over medium heat to 375 °F.
Carefully add muffins, a few at a time, shrimp-side-down.
Fry about 2 minutes or until light golden.
Turn; fry about 1 minute to brown other side.
Remove from oil with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
Sprinkle with salt.
