Baked Shrimp Mayo Toast — The Perfect Snack Recipe

This baked shrimp mayo toast has been a staple at many family gatherings and even my high tea parties. It’s so beloved and easy to make! You could easily make this with the 5 main ingredients of mayonnaise, garlic, shrimp, bread, and butter if you’re not interested in grocery shopping beforehand. 

It sort of reminds me of a poor man’s lobster roll so you could definitely switch up the baguette for some brioche. There are a few variations of this recipe. You could swap out shrimp for frozen crabmeat or mix it in with the shrimp. I believe that dill goes best with mayonnaise but you could also garnish with basil that’s been chiffonade.

Before you begin, take note: 

  • You can slice your bread beforehand (which is what I prefer). Personally, this method is more presentable when serving at parties. 
  • Alternatively, you can slice horizontally the baguette or ciabatta bread in half. So, you’d get a top and bottom like a burger. You’ll only cut your toasts into bite-sized pieces upon serving. This method is much easier if you’re making larger quantities. 
the perfect party appetizer!

Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 3 tbsp Mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves Garlic, grated
  • 42.6g / 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 170 – 200g / 6 oz unshelled Shrimp / Crabmeat
  • 1-2 tsp Dill 
  • 2-3 stalks Scallions /  Spring Onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Baguette / Ciabatta bread
  • a pinch of Black Pepper 
  • a pinch of Garlic Salt (optional)
  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. 
  2. Line a rimmed baking sheet with baking/parchment paper and arrange the bread on the baking tray. 
  3. Melt your butter over low heat in a saucepan or a microwave-proof bowl if you’re using the microwave. Set it aside to let it cool slightly.
  4. Cut your shrimp into smaller pieces. You may also use a food processor but be careful to prevent it from turning into shrimp paste. 
  1. In a large bowl, add the mayonnaise, garlic, shrimp, scallions, black pepper, and garlic salt (if using). Gently mix the mixture before slowing mixing in the melted butter. 
  2. Start spreading the shrimp mixture on the cut side of bread slices.
  3. Lastly, sprinkle dried dill on the shrimp toasts. Place your shrimp toasts in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until it turns golden brown. 
  4. Let it rest on a cooling rack before cutting into bite-size pieces. Enjoy!
