Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Coat baking sheet with oil or spray it with non-stick oil.
Place shrimp in a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil and minced garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Place into the oven and bake just until pink, about 6 minutes.
Let the shrimp cool down before slicing into bite-sized.
For Shrimp Spread:
In a bowl, add mayonnaise, sour cream, parmesan and Mozzarella cheese.
Add the onion powder, oregano and thyme. Add the diced pieces of shrimp and mix well.
Cut the baguette into your desired size or thickness, and top with the shrimp spread.
Place and arrange each slices onto the oil-sprayed baking sheet. Sprinkle with cajun seasoning. Place into oven and bake for 3-4 minutes, or until cheese have melted.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
• 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.
• This recipe yields a spread enough for about 10 to 12 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.
