Irish Shrimp Toast #FishFridayFoodie


This is a perfect little Irish appetizer or party fare. I have used fresh shrimps for this recipe and it turned out juicy, delicious and yummy. Was apprehensive to use liqueur in the spread, but when I tasted it after adding the liqueur it tasted even more awesome, the liqueur adds a touch of sweetness to it. To serve it as a party appetizer toast the slices of bread in advance, prepare the Shrimp Cheese Spread and refrigerate it. Spread it on the bread just before serving. I made 12 toast with the quantity of spread, can double or triple it for a party.


Makes 12 toasts
Ingredients

4 Tablespoons Heaped Cream Cheese- at room temperature
100 Grams Boiled S
hrimps - finely chopped
12 Whole Medium Boiled Shrimps  
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise - homemade
1 Tablespoon Liqueur
1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon juice
1 Tablespoon  Parsley - finely chopped
6 Bread Slices 
1 Fresh Red Chilly or to taste - minced

Method

Preheat the broiler at 250 Degrees C.
To Make the Shrimp Cheese Spread

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, chopped shrimp, mayonnaise, liqueur, lemon juice, parsley and red chilly to taste. Stir until smooth.

Cut the sides of the bread 

arrange the slices them on a baking sheet and toast under the broiler,  for 2 minutes on each side, or until lightly toasted.

Spread one side of each slice with the shrimp spread,  

add the whole shrimp in the center, a small piece of red chilly and parsley leaf. 
  
Place the tray in the broiler for 2 minute, or until the mixture bubbles and browns.  

Serve immediately.
