Blackstone Parmesan Pesto Shrimp Toast

Blackstone Parmesan Pesto Shrimp Toast

I cook a lot on my griddle/ flat top grill (I know… shocker 😉 )… so when I tell you Blackstone Parmesan Pesto Shrimp Toast is in my top 10 favorite griddle recipes, you KNOW they have to be incredible.

Kind of like garlic toast pizza, but a bit on the fancy side with the pesto and shrimp.

You could certainly make these inside without the griddle, but what fun would that be?!

A great camping meal, a fun dinner on the patio, or even serve them as an appetizer.

How to make Blackstone Parmesan Pesto Shrimp Toast

As with any griddle recipe, prepare your ingredients and put them on a tray to carry everything outside with ease.

Whoops, forgot the cheese on the tray… but it’s ok, it happens 😉

prepped ingredients on a tray

First preheat your Blackstone griddle or flat top grill to medium heat for a few minutes.

Then add some cooking oil of choice along with a pound of medium to large size shrimp and 2 teaspoons of Old Bay seasoning.

Cook the shrimp for 3 to 4 minutes, then add some lemon juice before removing them from the griddle.

Scrape the griddle if needed and place 8 slices of frozen garlic toast.

They will cook 3 to 4 minutes total, flipping a few times.

Keep an eye on them and if they are cooking too quickly you can lower the heat and move them to the edge of the griddle where it’s not as hot.

Turn the heat off when they are lightly golden brown and spread each with some pesto.

You can use a melting dome to help the cheese melt if desired, then add the shrimp onto each.
