This recipe is so easy, it only takes minutes to prepare - make it in the Am keep egg mixture at room temp (or have it in the fridge and bring it out to reach room temp before spreading the crackers) & slip the shrimp in the fridge. Just before serving butter the toasts (crackers) top with the shrimp, sprinkle with parsley and watch them disappear.I used Dare Vinta crackers and they were perfect. I served these to 4 persons that each have very different tastes and they were enjoyed by all. The entire recipe was devoured by four of us! Thanks Dorothy for yet another winner

This was extremely easy, but oh so good! The only thing that was slightly different , was that I used homemade french dressing the second time I prepared this .Too bad I had to stop at five stars!
