Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2004


  • 2 teaspoons small capers
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • French bread, sliced (about 2 ounces)
  • 1 medium garlic clove, peeled and halved
  • Coarse salt
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 14 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined


  1. For garlic toast: Heat broiler with rack 4 inches from heat. Brush both sides of 2 slices French bread with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Broil until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.

  2. Rub one side of bread with cut sides of 1 peeled and halved garlic clove; sprinkle with coarse salt. Discard garlic; set toast aside.

  3. For sauteed shrimp: In a medium skillet, heat remaining tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add 1 minced medium shallot, and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Add 14 peeled and deveined medium shrimp. Cook, tossing occasionally, until shrimp are opaque throughout, about 3 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a shallow bowl, and set aside.

  4. Add 1/2 cup fresh orange juice, 2 teaspoons small capers (rinsed and drained), and 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt to the skillet; bring to a boil. Cook until sauce is slightly thickened, about 1 minute. Spoon over shrimp. Serve with toast.

Cook's Notes

For the best results, prepare all the ingredients while the broiler is heating, then make the garlic toast just before cooking the shrimp.
