This bruschetta is rich and delicous. With shrimp, portabellas, vine ripe tomatoes, fresh basil, & italian cheeses, it's an irresistible meal.


1 loaf rosemary & olive oil bread; sliced 1" or 1 1/4" thick (4 slices)
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil; (more if needed) for drizzling
2 cloves garlic; use garlic press or mince
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves; chopped
2 vine ripe tomatoes; chopped, discard seeds
7 baby portabellas; chopped 1/2" cubes (more if real small)
31 raw shrimp; (up to 40 count)
1 cup fresh water packed mozzarella; shredded
1/4 cup parmigiano reggiano; shredded, enough to cover top
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, for marinade
1 cup white wine; for marinade
0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper; to taste

Original recipe makes 2



In a medium size bowl, combine 1 cup olive oil, 1 cup white wine, & pepper to taste; whisk together thoroughly. Add shrimp & mushrooms & let marinade for about 20 minutes.

Place bread slices on a baking sheet & toast under a 425 degree broiler on both sides.

Meanwhile, transfer shrimp mixture to skillet & saute' until shrimp are just opaque (flipping shrimp only once). Remove shrimp immediately & continue cooking mushrooms until they begin to soften. Remove from heat & set aside.

When bread is toasted, remove from oven & drizzle with olive oil. Add pressed or minced garlic, basil, & tomatoes (for best results I add them in that order). Keep the cook happy & eat one shrimp. Chop the rest into thirds & add to bruschetta. Using a slotted spoon, add portabella mushrooms. Sprinkle pine nuts & add mozzarella & parmigiano cheeses on top.

Return pan to oven & increase broiler temperature to 450 degrees. Take it out when the cheese starts to turn golden.

*If you add crayfish tails to the the shrimp mixture it adds an unexpected rich, buttery flavor.
