If you are looking for the perfect holiday appetizer, this is it: my Spicy Shrimp & Avocado Crostinis are the way to go for a quick, easy, delicious, and crowd-pleasing appetizer.


  • 12 Slices Sourdough Baguette
  • 1 Cup Cherry Tomatoes halved
  • 2 Avocados cubed
  • 5 Cloves Garlic mashed or minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 12 Large Shrimp thawed, peeled, and deveined
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Chili Powder
  • 1/4 Cup Fresh Parsley finely chopped
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 1 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste


  • Start by preheating the oven to 350 F. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and line your sourdough baguette slices evenly across it.
  • In a small bowl, add the olive oil and minced garlic and mix together. Take a small pastry brush and brush both sides of your baguette slices with the oil + garlic mixture.
  • Bake your baguette slices for 10-15 minutes, or until they reach your desired crispiness.
  • While the baguette slices are toasting in the oven, prepare your shrimp. Pour your peeled, de-veined, and thawed shrimp into a bowl and add-in the garlic, paprika, lemon juice, chili powder, and salt. Toss to combine.
  • Next, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and coat with olive oil. When the oil is hot, carefully place each shrimp down into the pan, and cook evenly on both sides (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat, sprinkle with a little chopped parsley, and set aside.
  • In another small bowl, mix together the avocado, halved cherry tomatoes, lemon juice, and salt.
  • Once your baguette is done, top each slice with a dollop of avocado, a piece of shrimp, and another small dusting of parsley. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
