(EN) When the barbecue is ready and you need quick appetizers to serve your guests, grill these tasty shrimps with garlic and herbs, and serve them on delicious crostini.

“These grilled crostinis are perfect for summer afternoons in the yard. You can prepare the tomatoes and toast the baguette in advance, then cook the shrimp on the grill when everyone starts to feel hungry, “said Martin Patenaude, executive chef for President’s Choice Culinary Schools. “The number of shrimps in each package varies, so try cutting the baguette into as many slices as there are shrimp. ”
