This shrimp toast recipe comes from my super-talented sister who comes up with the best appetizers and meals for our family gatherings. This is one one of her specialties – and I’ve always been quick to gobble up way too many at our family potlucks.
Ingredients & Notes
Shrimp – I like using jumbo shrimp with the shell on, it has a clean and sweet taste. For quick and easy prep, I try to get the shrimp already de-veined.
Bread – A fresh baguette is a must have.
Cheese – I use a mixture of cheddar cheese and monterey jack
Mayonnaise – If you can get your hands on Kewpie mayo, it will take the shrimp mixture to the next level. Kewpie is a Japanese brand mayo that is super creamy and richer in flavor than your average mayo. The mayonnaise helps the shrimp mixture stay moist, and binds it to the toast.
Sugar – Adds just a touch of sweetness
Salt/pepper – To taste
- Mince the shrimp and green onions together.
- Add the mayo, sugar, salt and pepper
- Spread the mixture onto the baguette slices, about ¼ inch thick, then lightly sprinkle cheese on top of the mixture.
- Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 12 to 13 minutes, or until the shrimp is thoroughly cooked.
- Don’t like hand chopping? Use a food processor to mince and blend the shrimp and onion.
- Use parchment paper for easy cleanup.
