These Asian-inspired appetizers are sure to please any party.
Why This Recipe Works
This Gingered Shrimp Toasts recipe pairs a ginger-flavored cream cheese spread on slices of baguette with a halved shrimp for an elegant appetizer. Using a thin baguette, sometimes called a ficelle, gives the canapé a bite-size base. The shrimp can be bought precooked or poached briefly at home. We were sure to chill the shrimp after poaching to prevent them from overcooking from residual heat.
