Ingredients

  • 8 firm Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 pound cooked shrimp, peeled and sliced horizontally or into small chunks
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 8 ounces baby mozzarella cheese balls, halved or quartered
  • 15 oz artichoke hearts, one 15 oz can, liquid drained and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt + pepper, to taste
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 Tablespoons good quality basil pesto
  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan, more if desired
  • 1 avocado
  • Balsamic glaze, for serving
  • 1 French Baguette, sliced and toasted
  • Olive oil

Instructions

  • In a large bowl combine the seeded and diced tomatoes, chopped shrimp, green onion, quartered mozzarella balls, and chopped artichoke hearts.
  • In a smaller bowl whisk together the minced garlic, salt and pepper, lemon juice, pesto and grated parmesan cheese.
  • Carefully stir together the shrimp and tomato mixture with the pesto mixture. Cover and place in the refrigerator while toasting baguette slices.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Slice baguette into 1/4 inch thick pieces and lay them in an even layer on a baking sheet or baking stone. Using a pastry brush, brush a small amount of olive oil on each side of each piece of bread. Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and transfer to a platter for serving.
  • When ready to serve, peel and chop the avocado into small cubes and add to shrimp mixture. Carefully spoon a small spoonful onto the top of each piece of toasted baguette and drizzle with balsamic glaze (if desired).
