Lemon Shrimp Bruschetta

Serves 4
Garlic Toast

12 (1/2 inch thick) slices baguette or Italian loaf
1 clove garlic, peeled

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Bake the bread slices on a parchment-lined baking sheet until crisp and golden brown, about 10‒12 minutes; rub the garlic clove over the toasts.

1/4 cup Italian organic extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
2 cloves garlic, minced (or organic garlic granules)
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
3/4 pound large shrimp or wild spot prawns (31/35 countabout 24), peeled and deveined, tails removed
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1 teaspoon finely minced lemon zest (about 1/2 lemon)
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Heat a medium sauté pan over medium heat; add the oil and heat through.
  • Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and shrimp; cook, stirring constantly, until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the lemon juice, and cook until the shrimp are just cooked through and the liquid is reduced by half, about 2 minutes more.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Just before serving, drizzle the garlic toasts with olive oil, then top with the lemon shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with lemon zest and parsley and serve immediately.
