Ingredients

  • 4 friselle (double baked Italian bread)
  • 15 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 12 fresh shrimp, cleaned
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Juice and zest of 1 orange 
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 
  • 6 basil leaves, torn
  • 2 large balls buffalo mozzarella, sliced

Directions

Quickly dunk your friselle in a bowl of water and then transfer to another dry bowl. You don't want them too wet - they should have a little bit of crunch in the center. Add your cherry tomatoes and set aside. 

Place the shrimp in a bowl and cover with the olive oil, orange zest and juice, and some salt and pepper. Let marinate 10 minutes.

Arrange the shrimp, bread and tomatoes on a serving platter along with the marinade. Add the basil and mozzarella, season with salt and pepper and finish with a drizzle of olive oil.
