The Perfect Summer Appetizer

This bruschetta was inspired by my trip to the NYY Steak House in New York City where I had a roasted shrimp appetizer with a mango salsa. Hold on to your hats- but I said to my wife that it was the first time I had even had a mango. With her mouth open in shock…yep, I can still surprise her…she passed the plate over to me and told me that I needed to finish it then, because it was delicious.

And it was.

So now I feel like I have to make up some time here with the mango. Instead of making a mango salsa to serve along side of the shrimp, I wanted to combine all the flavors together into this bruschetta.

How To Make The Best Shrimp Bruschetta

Start by roasting the shrimp in the oven, with a little salt, pepper and olive oil.

Let it cool while you chop up the other ingredients. You’re going to need 1 large mango, 1 avocado and about a half of a jalapeño – or a whole one if you like it spicier!

Chop the mango and the avocado into bite-sized pieces and add to a bowl. You can add the lime juice now so the avocado doesn’t brown, then cut up the jalapeño into a very small dice and add it to the bowl with the mango and avocado.

Cut up the shrimp into similar sized pieces as the mango and avocado and then toss together with the mango and avocado. Next add the lime juice, olive oil, salt and crushed red pepper flakes.

Set in the fridge while you toast up your bread slices.

Once the toast has cooled, top with the Tropical Shrimp Bruschetta and serve on a platter. This is also great with pita chips or tortilla chips as a dip!
