"My father made this for me while experimenting in the kitchen. It was absolutely the most delicious way to use shrimp. I think I've gotten pretty good at making this dish but it still doesn't compare to my father's! Don't be fooled by the ingredients. Most are optional and this is easy to make! Great for parties as appetizers or a main dish." — LISA158

This was very popular at our playoff party. I only made a few changes, lightly toasted the bread before adding the shrimp so that it won't get soggy, didn't used the yellow onion, but increased the green onions and baked the toast for 5-7 minutes in a 350 degree oven instead of frying to cut down the fat. Add some red peper flakes for a little bit of heat.
I was really excited to try this recipe. Don't know what went wrong, but we did not like this. Baked instead of fried, but I cannot imagine that would affect it SO much. Overall, t was very bland for us, and would not attempt again.
I made this recipe for my husband & friends. It was delicious. We enjoy the shrimp toast with lemon wedges and the sauce with the recipe. Recommended.
Delicious! Had only king crab so I added a little mayo and grated cheddar to help bind it together. Put on butter brushed toasted french bread. Baked in the oven instead of frying. YUMM!
this was excellent, I fried the bread and mixture in olive oil and a little butter....melt in your mouth...
I've never made this with crab... but I did happen to have some King Crab knuckles in my freezer, so I tried it. I am at a loss to understand why people baked this rather than quick deep-fried it, because deep-frying made such a difference in flavor. To bake shrimp toast isn't really shrimp toast at all. And eliminating all the essential fatty acids in one's diet isn't good for the body, especially the brain and nervous system. And people are still using margarine for the sake of "less fat" when it is the equivalent of plastic? It hasn't lengthened anyone's life in my profession, just made it more miserable.
Very nice. A delicacy to be remembered.
The toast looks like it has some kind of breading on it. What is that? I haven't tried the recipe yet so can't give a rating.
