These cheesy shrimp tea sandwiches were super easy to make and uber delicious. You can’t go wrong with this list of ingredients!

I invited my sisters and their families over for dinner this past Sunday and they were all raving about these fantastic little tea sandwiches. You’ll want to pin these for future reference!

My husband’s cousin, Angelina shared this recipe with us for her “shrimp sandwiches.” Thanks Angelina for another great recipe. New favorite for sure! P.S. Angelina is also the genius behind:

1. Easy bread kvas

2. Braised cabbage with beef

3. Canned Veggie Assortment

I am so blessed to know some fabulous cooks! Thanks so much for sharing!

Ingredients for Shrimp and Cheese Canapés: 

1/2 lb cooked shrimp plus more for garnish (the extra for garnish is totally optional and completely unnecessary lol)
1 long Baguette bread
1/2 cup Mayo
2 cloves garlic
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 bunch dill (fresh or frozen)
1 cup of three cheese Mexican blend shredded cheese

3. Cut your bread into 1/2-inch slices. Spread the mixture generously over the bread slices, place it in the oven at 350˚F to melt the cheese and sizzle the shrimp a tad (8-10 minutes).

You can really jazz these up by adding a sautéed shrimp over the top, but they’re just as good without it. I was trying really hard to be fancy. I served these on Sunday without the extra shrimp. No one cared. They were too busy gobbling these up.

    Could you be a little more specific on the amounts of dill and parsley? Half a bunch depends on the size of the bunch! 😉

      Hi Allyson, typically a bunch of fresh dill contains about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of loosely packed leaves and stems.

      Thanks for sharing, Sanari. You could absolutely make the spread in advance and then before serving, put it on the bread and toast it. I wouldn’t put it on the bread in advance though or the bread might become soggy in spots.

    My goodness these were delectable! I didn’t’ have any dill so I just used fresh parsley from the garden. Our company was very impressed.

    Do I buy raw shrimp from the store or cooked? I have a bag of “cooked salad shrimp” , would that work?

      Hi Lana, These are made with pre-cooked shrimp, but you could totally sautee them yourself and yes they’d be more flavorful, but even with a pre-cooked shrimp, the spread is just bursting with amazing flavor. I haven’t tried cooked salad shrimp but I imagine it may work. I love how easy these are with the cooked shrimp in them!

    Hello I was wondering if we can make the topping ahead of time and on the day just put on the baguettes slices and bake it. It looks amazing. Thank you

    Hi, Natasha! Just found your blog couple days ago while searching for a perfect thanksgivings turkey recipe. We invited three families over to our new home for a thanksgiving and I’ve never cooked for so many quests before. I’m a bit nervous, but so excited I found this blog.
    My question is about mayo. Do you use American or Russian style mayo in your recipes?

      Hi Aksana, I used American style – Kraft or Real Mayo brands or something similar. I don’t believe I have tried Russian style mayo. Is it sold in Russian stores? Is there a specific brand you could recommend?

        Thanks for your reply. Yes, Russian style mayo is sold at Russian grocery stores. It tastes very different (more flavorful) than American style. It’s popular as a ready to use salad dressing (for a potato or a beet salad as an example; nothing else is needed). There are lots of different brands but they all taste pretty much the same.

      Hi Natasha, thank you for the recipe. Our local fish market sells shrimp cooked in garlic butter spice sauce. Do you think these would be good with this recipe or best not to use ones with spice? Thanks.

    Just made this for the first time today and it was a huge hit at Afternoon Tea! One change I made was to shred Fontina, Jack, and Smoked Gouda cheese instead of using the bagged Mexican blend. Sorry, but that bagged stuff tastes like plastic to me.

      That sounds like a great combination of cheeses!
