Prep time: 20 Minutes   Cooking time: 15 Minutes   Serves: 8-10  

INGREDIENTS:

1 Baguette, Sliced
3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Divided
1 Pound Small Raw Shrimp, Peeled and Deveined with Tails Removed
1 Avocado, Diced
Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
6-Ounce Container Crumbled Feta Cheese
1 Cup Grape Tomatoes, Sliced into Quarters
2 Teaspoons and 3 Tablespoons Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning
Pickled Red Onions (See Notes Below)

DIRECTIONS:

1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2: Lay the baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 Tablespoon olive oil, then evenly sprinkle on 2 teaspoons Tony's Original Creole Seasoning. Place into oven and toast for 10-12 minutes. Remove and let cool.
3: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 3 Tablespoons Tony's Original Creole Seasoning to the water. Carefully put the raw shrimp in the water and cook until they turn pink and look opaque. Remove the shrimp with a slotted spoon and let cool on a sheet pan or in a colander.
4: In a small bowl, add the avocado, lemon zest, lemon juice and remaining olive oil. Gently mash the avocado with lemon and oil until combined. It should be slightly chunky.
5: To assemble the toasts: spread a heaping teaspoon of avocado on bread, next add 2-3 shrimp (depending on size), a few pieces of tomato, crumbled feta, and top with pickled red onion.
 
NOTES:
To make the pickled red onions, place half of a thinkly sliced red onion in a bowl. Add 1 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 tablespoons sugar. Let sit for 20 minutes, occasionally giving it a stir. Remove onions and drain well before use.
