cut in half lengthwise
Chef Shamy Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter,
about ¼ lime juiced
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
Slice French bread into ¼" slices. You will need 18 slices for this recipe. You can easily double this recipe to use up the loaf of bread.
Spread Chef Shamy's Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter on both sides of bread.
Place slices on prepared baking sheet and bake 7-8 minutes then flip for 7-8 minutes more or until crusty and golden brown.
This step can be done ahead of time. You can keep the crostini in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
Prepare shrimp marinade by combining ⅛ cup Chef Shamy's Parmesan Basil Garlic Butter, lemon juice and olive oil in a bowl large enough to hold shrimp.
Place shrimp in marinade and let sit for 30 minutes to 1 hour in the refrigerator.
While shrimp is marinating prepare bacon.
Turn oven up to 400 degrees. Remove bread from cookie sheet. Place a cooling rack on top of foil. Spray with nonstick spray for easier clean-up.
Slice bacon in half lengthwise. Place slices of bacon on top of rack and cook about ½ the time as normal, about 11 minutes, as you still want it pliable enough to wrap around shrimp.
Remove from oven, let cool slightly.
Heat grill to medium high, around 400-450 degrees.
Remove shrimp from marinade leaving butter that has solidified on them and wrap a piece of bacon around each one.
Skewer shrimp and grill about 2 minutes each side.
In a small bowl, mash avocado and mix with the juice of ¼ lime. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
Spread each crostini with some avocado mash and set one shrimp on top of each.
Garnish with arugula and place on platter with some cherry tomatoes as garnish.
