These shrimp appetizers are simple yet full of flavor. Just top melba toasts with a bit of cream cheese, a cooked shrimp and dollop of pepper jelly. Look for pepper jelly near other jellies and jams—it has a tiny bit of heat that gives these some extra pizzazz!
- 4 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchâtel)
- 24 small, round melba toasts or whole-wheat crackers
- 24 small (60-70 per pound) cooked peeled shrimp (about 4 ounces)
- 1 tablespoon pepper jelly
- Spread 1/2 teaspoon cream cheese on each cracker. Top each with a shrimp and 1/8 teaspoon pepper jelly.
