Shrimp and Herbed Garlic Mayonnaise on Toast
Recipe type: appetizer
Serves: 2 servings
  • ½ pound or so large shrimp, peeled, deveined and cooked (figure three shrimp per toast)
  • 6 slices of baguette or similar bread, about an inch thick (figure two or three toasts per person)
  • olive oil for the bread, if toasting on a grill
  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • handful of parsley, leave and stems
  • ½ to 1 cup mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lemon for garnish and to squeeze over top if desired
  1. Prepare the garlic mayonnaise by whirling the garlic cloves along with the parsley in a food processor until finely chopped. Add to the mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Toast the bread by spraying with olive oil spray and cooking in a grill pan. A conventional toaster may also be used.
  3. Warm the shrimp. I used the grill pan after I finished with the toast.
  4. Generously spread the herb mayonnaise on the toast and top with three shrimp.
  5. Arrange on a tray and garnish with chopped parsley and sliced lemon as desired.
