I saw it on the Internet: Shrimp Toasts

Did I tell ya’ll I have a slight addiction to TikTok? I mean I think it’s a good one because it really has my creative juices flowing which means trying new recipes that happen to be delicious! This includes this Shrimp Toast recipe I saw scrolling one day and I tweaked it and recently made it for our Easter brunch and I have to tell ya’ll I was more than happy to make it again and share with ya’ll! Anything for science, HA! Let’s make it!

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf of French bread
  • 1 package of raw shrimp (peeled and deveined and you ca get the small ones because it really doesn’t matter for this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup of mushrooms chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup of raw spinach
  • 1 8 oz block of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese, your choice ( I used mozzarella, Parmesan, and Mexican blend)
  • 1 whole clove of garlic
  • 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
  • 1-2 tablespoons of butter
  • Seasonings of choice (I used onion and garlic powder, cajun seasoning and ranch dry mix)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In saucepan on medium high heat add a tablespoon of olive oil and butter and begin sautéing mushrooms and spinach until wilted. Add shrimp (and more butter if needed) and season. Once shrimp is just cooked remove from heat and set aside. Slice French bread in thick slices and add to parchment lined baking sheet. Pour over olive oil and spread and add to broiler to toast for 1-2 minutes. DO NOT LEAVE or you will burn your toast! Ask me how I know. Remove slices and take whole garlic clove and rub each slice. Set aside. Add cooled shrimp mixture to bowl with cream cheese and mix well. Add about a cup of cheeses of choice and mix again. Scoop mixture on each slice of bread and add more shredded cheese on top. Bake in over for about 10 minutes and then put in broiler for 1-2 minutes to brown (listen to me do not walk away)! Remove and let set for about 5 minutes and enjoy! I served this with all the normal brunch regulars and I also made this for an early dinner with a simple side salad.

Pro home cook tip: When seasoning food pour it in your hand first, then sprinkle. This will prevent you adding too much!

If you make this please invite me over! or at least tag me on Instagram lol.

Love, Ricki
