With the right recipes entertaining can be quite fun and rewarding. I mean honestly who doesn’t love people bragging about what a great cook they are. These Shrimp Toast are a take off on the Chinese Fried Shrimp Toast only they are baked and they have a Cajun twist to them. They are flavor packed and extremely easy to make. My friends and family just love them.

    NOTES Broilers are very unpredictable so please use my times for the toasting the baguette slices as an estimate. For even more browning turn on the broiler the last minute of baking the shrimp toasts but keep in mind that parchment paper can catch on fire.
