Ingredients

4 oz (125 g) northern shrimp
1/4 cup (60 mL) salsa
16 to 20 crackers or 
baked tortilla chips
1/2 cup (125 mL) shredded Canadian Monterey Jack or 
Mozzarella cheese

Preparation

Drain shrimp, pat dry and cut into small pieces. In a bowl, combine shrimp and salsa. Spoon evenly on top of crackers. Place on a small baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese evenly over shrimp mixture.

Bake in preheated 400 °F (200 °C) oven or toaster oven for about 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Tips

A smooth salsa works best for this recipe. Some of the chunky versions may have pieces that are too big to fit on the cracker.

To microwave, place 4 or 5 crackers on a microwave-safe plate and microwave on Medium-High (70 %) power for about 20 seconds or until cheese is melted.
