Serving Size: 12 crosini
- 12 medium to large shrimp thawed, peeled & deveined
- 12 baguette slices (about 1/2″-3/4″ thick)
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
- Juice of 1/4 lime
- 1 avocado
- Arugula to taste
- Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350F and move the rack to the top. Line a baking sheet with foil and place the baguette slices on there.
Add the olive oil and minced garlic to a small bowl. Brush the baguette slices on both sides with the oil/garlic mix. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they’re as crispy as you want. 15 minutes made them really crispy.
Meanwhile, add a splash of olive oil to a skillet on medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, chili powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika, and salt & pepper to taste. Cook, stirring often, until the shrimp are pink (about 5 mins). Remove the pan from the heat.
In a small bowl, mash the avocado, lime, and a bit of salt & pepper together.
Once the baguette slices are toasted, let them cool for a few minutes and then spread a layer of avocado on each one. Top with the arugula and shrimp. Serve immediately.
