1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place the bread slices in a single layer on a cookie sheet and bake until bread is very crusty. Remove from oven; arrange on a platter; set - aside.
2. Heat the oil in a deep skillet or frying pan until hot; add the spices (take care as it may splatter a bit). Add shrimps and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
3. Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon to the platter with the toasted bread; drizzle with a small amount of cooking oil. Serve with lemon wedges and cocktail sauce, if desired. Serves 8 - 12 as an appetizer.
