Shrimp Toast

This is a no-brainer crowd pleaser recipe. During my earlier days in Canada, I could not get enough of cream cheese and the combination of that creaminess with a tangy mango pickle and sweet shrimp hard to beat. The toast can be prepared ahead and time and popped in the oven when ready to serve.

Step 1
Marinate the shrimp with turmeric, chili, amchur, salt, and olive oil. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or overnight.
Step 2
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Cut the baguettes into thin wheels, lay them on a baking pan and toast in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until crisp. Allow time to cool.
Step 3
On each toast, spread a teaspoon each of cream cheese, chutney, and 2 to 3 shrimp. Then spread the toasts on a baking pan.
Step 4
Roast in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes – the cheese should have softened and the shrimp should be cooked through.
Step 5
Garnish with fresh herbs and serve.
1 pound small shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 teaspoon ground dried turmeric
1 teaspoon red chili powder
2 teaspoons amchur (dried green mango)
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 baguette
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sweet chutney (such as mango or peach)
Handful of fresh herbs

Notes & Variations

  • An Indian grated mango chutney by the name of ‘Chundo’ is perfect for this recipe. Most brands are good like Deep, Nirav, or Pathak.
  • Replace cream cheese with chevre or another melting cheese.
  • Other breads will work also — remember to pre-toast it so it does not get soggy while making the shrimp toast.
