Avocado and Shrimp Crostini Recipe – fast and easy to make, perfect for a healthy snack and great for a party.Avocado And Shrimp Crostini Recipe

Crunchy bread, mashed avocado and lightly seasoned shrimp – I can totally call these avocado and shrimp crostini lunch or dinner, too!

I’m a huge fan of avocado toast, and this time I made it in its mini version – crostini!

This was my dinner on Monday, when I was too lazy to cook!

Avocado And Shrimp Crostini Recipe

The weather on Sunday and Monday was pretty warm for this time of the year, in the 40s.

We got some sun, yay! I spent a lot of time outdoors with my dog, who is recovering from a knee surgery!

It kind of felt like spring is around the corner, even though it is not!

We still have a couple more months with chilly weather.

Can’t wait for the temperatures to warm up.

  7. This looks very interesting…

    I think I might have a clarification on step 2 though, was surprised no one mentioned it in comments. I assume we are putting the baguette slices on the parchment paper to bake for that 10 – 15 minutes.

    Will have to get a baguette and some avocadoes and try this out. We have shrimp in the freezer.

  8. How far in advance can you assemble these? Does the avocado turn brown and does the avocado spread make the bread soggy. Looks delicious!

    1. Yes, the avocado will turn brown in 1 hour. The bread will get a little​ soggy. I don’t recommend making it in advance, sorry!
