Shrimp Bruschetta

Traditionally when I think bruschetta, I think tomatoes and basil, but I like to save that for later on in the summer when tomatoes and basil are at their best. Mmmm….fresh tomatoes. Oh I can’t wait until summer! Until then however, its fun to experiment with different kinds of bruschetta. And shrimp as it turns out is a great addition.

Now that the weather gods here in Seattle are finally starting to realize that it is May and are granting us blue skies and sunshine, it’s time for a little bit lighter fare when it comes to dinner. This Shrimp Bruschetta fits the bill perfectly. I know it is listed under my appetizer section, but paired with a light salad and a little Pinot Grigio and you have the perfect summer supper.

Shrimp Bruschetta

Crusty french bread topped with succulent shrimp, garlic and crushed red pepper. A twist on traditional bruschetta.
