  • 1 lb large shrimp peeled, deveined, tails removed and steamed with creole seasoning.
  • 2/3 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried ground thyme
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Creole seasoning divided (I used Zatarain's)
  • 7 oz package Toasted French Rounds about 24


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Dice the shrimp into bite-size pieces.
  • Add the shrimp, mayonnaise, sour cream, mozzarella, parmesan, thyme, salt, pepper, onion powder and 1 teaspoon of the creole seasoning to a large bowl and mix well.
  • Place the toasted rounds on a baking sheet and top each with a spoonful of the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with a pinch of creole seasoning and bake for 6-8 minutes, or until the cheese melts and shrimp mixture is lightly browned.
  • Serve immediately.


You can prepare the shrimp mixture ahead and keep refrigerated for up to 24 hours before preparing the shrimp toast. While this shrimp toast is best served warm, it is also still good served at room temperature and I have been known to eat it cold right out of the refrigerator.
