Chilled shrimp in piquant remoulade sauce is a Creole classic. Here it tops pumpernickel toasts spread with a chilli-molasses butter. Use Westphalian-style pumpernickel bread cut into 1 1/2" rounds or squares. This recipe was shamelessly jacked from Bon Appetit.

- 2 teaspoons light molasses
- 1⁄4 teaspoon chili powder
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped celery
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 12 slices pumpernickel bread
- 8 ounces cooked peeled medium shrimp, cut into 1/2 -inch pieces
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- For MOLASSES BUTTER, using fork, mix first three ingredients in small bowl to blend.
- For REMOULADE SAUCE, mix next 12 ingredients, from mayonnaise to cayenne pepper, in medium bowl.
- Preheat oven to 425°F Spread molasses butter lightly over 1 1/2" rounds or squares of bread; arrange in single layer on baking sheet.
