  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 1 small baguette, cut in half lengthwise
  • 3 cups (34 large) tomatoes – heirloom if you can get them!
  • 1 cup of fresh basil, chopped (save the little leaves for garnish


  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Toss the shrimp with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and brush the cut side of the bread with a little more olive oil.
  2. Grill the bread until it is golden, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  3. Grill the shrimp for 2 minutes per side. If you have a seafood grilling pan it will be perfect for this – if not, just lay them carefully on the grate with tongs.
  4. Cut the baguette into small squares and place in a large bowl. Add the shrimp, baguette, tomatoes, and basil with the vinegar, the remaining oil and salt and pepper to taste.
