Directions

Chucks Hughes' freshly prepared panzanella bread salad with garlic shrimp is a gourmet appetizer that will satisfy anyone!
Preheat oven at 350 degrees F/200 degrees C.

Place the sourdough bread on a parchment paper-lined baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, mix together the dandelions, fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, roasted pepper, red onion, and caper berries. Keep aside in the refrigerator.

Chop a garlic clove in half, and rub it on the bottom and sides of a large bowl. While the croutons are still hot, add them into the bowl to infuse the garlic flavor. Squeeze the tomato halves over the croutons to allow their juices to mix in. Once the tomatoes have been juiced, cut up the remainder of the tomatoes and toss in with the crouton mixture. Drizzle with olive oil and let it rest at room temperature for 2 hours for the bread to soak all the juices from the tomatoes and olive oil.

In a pan on medium-high heat, saute the asparagus in butter for 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and toss it with the croutons. Add the shrimp to the same pan and saute in olive oil for 1 minute, on each side. Add the garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the croutons and asparagus with the dandelion salad.

For serving: Cut the burrata cheese on the serving plate, season with salt and pepper. Pile the panzanella salad and the garlic shrimp on top.

    Fabulous! I have made it at least a half dozen times. 'Don't have access to fresh, young dandelions.... use baby arugula and or baby spinach. I am a vegetarian so I sometimes add fresh or pan sauteed mushrooms in place of the shrimp.... ALWAYS use the burrata chesse... cherry or large tomatoes depending on what is available...yum! I have not been disappointed with any of Chuck's recipes. It's one of those recipes that people request... definately a keeper!!

    Oh my gosh. When I saw Chuck creating this dish this morning, I knew I wanted it for lunch at least twice this week. I consider myself an avid watcher, but this seemed perfect for summer days. Chuck you are the best!
