Baked shrimp toast - perfect appetizer

I tend to look for a more satisfying way to have shrimp. One way to do so is to have a Vietnamese dish called “banh mi quet tom”.

It may be non-traditional, but it hits the spot. I tried this once at a Vietnamese restaurant and it was heaven.

By the time I had shrimp cravings again, I didn’t feel like driving for an hour just to satisfy it. That was when I created this shrimp toast recipe.

    The Bread:

    The first time I made my shrimp toast, the grocery store didn’t have any baguettes, so I just bought a loaf of ciabatta bread. I added fresh basil to the rest of the ingredients because it imparts a delicious aroma.

    If you find any crusty bread, it will do. For baguettes, you can slice them vertically and then divide each slice horizontally. For the ciabatta, cut it horizontally, in half.

    Whatever bread you choose, make sure you cut each slice under an inch in thickness.

    The Shrimp:

    There is no rule about how big or how small the shrimp chunks are supposed to be. It doesn’t matter, as long as the shrimp is in the mixture.

    Creamiest Shrimp Toast

    In my opinion, the sour cream and the tangy mayonnaise are just right to complement the shrimps. But I didn’t go overboard with cheese into my spread because the strong flavors of the cheese would overwhelm the sweet flavor of the shrimps.

    If you prefer cheese, feel free to sprinkle some on top before you bake the shrimp toast slices.

    The Flavors:

    You are in charge of the flavors you incorporate into the spread. Stick with the traditional Vietnamese or Asian spices especially if this reminds you of your first shrimp toast.

    If you want to veer away from the conventional flavors, perhaps you could make the shrimp spread a bit lively. Add some Parmesan, sour cream, Cajun seasoning, thyme, mozzarella, oregano, green onion, and parsley. You could even make it as spicy as you want.

    Notes:

    1. If you want to use cheese, use one with a mild flavor that could complement the shrimp well. Strong cheeses such as blue cheese could easily cover up the sweetness of the shrimp and take over the spread itself.

    2.  This recipe yields a spread enough for about 10 to 15 baguette slices, depending on the size of each slice. It can also be enough for half of a 6-inch by 8-inch ciabatta bread.

    Try this shrimp toast recipe out and blow the minds of family and friends on your next gathering.
