Crispy Shrimp Toast Sandwiches: Recipe #26
Uncrustables get a gourmet makeover.
I’ve been making versions of this shrimp toast recipe for years.
To my surprise I have never ever made them "covered" with two pieces of bread surrounding the shrimp mixture!

I immediately in my head dismissed this suggestion as outrageous, but then I thought about it and said, “Why not”???

Well, the result was awesome. And the simple fact is that this little tasty treat is a 12-month-a-year delicious plateful of awesome.
In many parts of the country there are live local shrimp in markets, and this is a great change-of-pace dish. I have also tried this with lobster, and it works beautifully as well. Let the lobster come to room temperature. Dip the lobster in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and plunge into an ice bath, crack the shells carefully and you can remove the raw meat for many uses including this one if you are so inclined.

Dip the lobster in boiling water for 1 minute, which will kill it and cook the meat just enough to remove it from the shell.
