This wonderful bread can be cut up into smaller (2") pieces and served as an appetizer or cut into larger pieces and served with soup or a salad for a great light supper.

Here in the Northwest, we are fortunate to have fresh Oregon Shrimpmeat (120 count). This is the type of shrimp I use in this recipe.

My family adores this bread. I guarantee you won't be able to stop eating at one slice! ENJOY!
