Vanilla Shrimp Crostini

Vanilla Shrimp Crostini

A tantalizing combination of textures and flavors, this appetizer is a great replacement for shrimp cocktail on the holiday buffet.



  1. Slice bread on the diagonal into 24 (1/2-inch thick) slices. Place on baking sheet; broil until lightly toasted on both sides.
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, shave cheese into very thin slices. Set aside.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 2 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink.
  4. Add wine, vanilla, basil and red pepper; cook 2 to 4 minutes.
  5. Remove shrimp from pan.
  6. Boil sauce 1 minute; remove pan from heat and whisk in remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. The butter must melt gradually to form a creamy sauce.
  7. To assemble appetizers, brush toasted bread slices with warm sauce from skillet. Top with 1 to 2 thin slices of cheese, then 1 to 2 shrimp (depending on size); brush with additional sauce. Garnish with roasted red pepper and chives, if desired.
