Entertaining Dish – Shrimp Toast Points

My brother invited me and the hub over for dinner tonight. Our responsibility was to bring an appetizer of some sort. I had no idea was to bring…but we do have shrimp. {Funny story, about two weeks ago Harris Teeter had a special buy 2 bags of frozen shrimp, get 3 FREE. THREE. BAGS. FREE. That is beau-coup shrimp. You’ll notice we’ll be experimenting with shrimp over the next few weeks. Anyyywayy.}

It’s been a particularly productive weekend and I was hoping to make something lovely, from items I have in the fridge/pantry. After some thought. Here’s what we concocted!

Shrimp Toast Points

  • 8 – 21/30 peel and eat shrimp. Peeled and de-tailed
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch pepper
  • 8 pieces of sliced bread
  • Hot sauce

Preheat the oven to 350. Using a serrated knife cut the crusts from the bread. Cut the bread in half, diagonally, creating two triangles. On a baking sheet, lay the bread out and either brush with olive oil or spray with cooking spray with olive oil –  toast the bread for 10 minutes, while you prepare the remaining ingredients. {I did kick up the broiler at the end, I get tired of waiting for them to toast. But be careful the broiler works quick}

Pan saute the shrimp with a small splash of olive oil, until pink and curled. Remove from the heat to a cutting board.

In a small bowl combine the mayo, mustard, cheese and Worcestershire together. After the shrimp has cooled and roughly chop into small pieces. Gently add the shrimp into mayo mixture.

You can either use the toast points has halves or you can cut them again so they are quarter triangle. I found the quarters are bite size and easier to eat! Spoon some of the shrimp mixture onto each toast point.

Bake the toast points for 10 minutes, until heated through. Serve with hot sauce on the side for those guest who would like an extra kick! Total get-together favorite tonight.

Yum, enjoy!

  1. How do you think this would work for a tailgate? Would it be sketchy because it’s a seafood? Does it really only work while warm? It’s a shortish tailgate (gates open at 4, concert starts at 8) but still….

    1. I think it would be great for tailgating! Being warm doesn’t really make the dish (but I am thinking about trying it as a dip sometime.) I would just make sure it’s kept cool like anything with mayonnaise – you know – out of direct sunlight etc. Give it a try!!
