12     slices of thin bread
1 lb.     shrimp, boiled, chopped fine
12     tbsp mayonnaise    
1         tbsp onion, chopped fine
1/4     Tsp pepper
2         Tsp paprika
1         cup butter, clarified*
 4         Tsp lemon juice, fresh
 2         Tsp horseradish
 ½     tsp salt
1         cup Parmesan cheese

Cut crusts off of bread. Cut each bread slice into 1/4, either round, oval or toast point. Mix the shrimp and other ingredients except Parmesan. Cover bread slices with shrimp mixture. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over bread. Place on cookie sheet and bake in 500-F or 260-C degree oven 3-5 minutes until cheese melts. Serve right from oven.  12 servings.

* To clarify butter, melt in a saucepan and measure out only the clear yellow oil from the top, leaving behind the whey residue at the bottom.
