Shrimp Bruschetta Inspired by The Chew
As soon as I saw this Pepper and Shrimp Bruschetta prepared by Laila Ali and Carla Hall on The Chew, I knew I wanted to make it for ya’ll. It looked so simple, yet delicious, I had to try it out.

Okay, confession time…I have not eaten that much bruschetta in my life. I hardly ever order it in a restaurant and just haven’t come across it much otherwise. I don’t know if all bruschetta is this darn good, or not, but I absolutely loved this dish. Loved it. In fact, I would say it’s my favorite dish on the blog so far. Yes, it’s that good.

Here’s how my recipe is slightly different from the one on The Chew: I used French bread instead of whole wheat, I used minced garlic instead of sliced in the shrimp pepper mixture, I also omitted cilantro. Just not a huge cilantro fan. If you like cilantro, add fresh chopped cilantro leaves at the end, just before serving. Also, I would recommend chopping the shrimp in slightly smaller pieces than you see in the pictures. The larger pieces had a tendency to jump ship (fall off the toasts).

Serve as an appetizer or even for lunch, which is what my friend Kim and I did. Thanks for helping with the recipe testing, Kim. I had a blast:)

      Hi Karen,
      Yes! Absolutely my favorite cooking show right now. I think whoever (er, whomever??) put these people together made excellent choices, they just really seem to have a good time, which makes you want to try their dishes even more.
      Thanks so much for the nice compliment:) Di
