    This was AMAZING. I made it just as it said and it was perfect. Be careful though, there is no ability for leftovers because the bread would be soggy. I shredded a tiny bit of fresh block cheese on it. Great for a hot summer night.

    I agree, this is AMAZING! Be sure to follow the directions for slowly heating the garlic, pepper, and olive oil, and once you increase the heat to add the shrimp, stir constantly to keep the garlic from burning. The result -- delicious roasted garlic flavor along with the refreshing basil and tomatos. So good, can't wait to make this one again!

    I made this as stated in the recipe twice now. The first time I cut the bread too large. With the smaller bread it was much better. I took it to a gathering and it was overwhelmingly received. I will make this again. I first made it for a main dish then for a salad. Both went well. I plan to use this at a special dinner event I host as a salad. I am going to line the plate with the tomatoes and add the shrimp and bread mixture in the center, topped with more basil. Everyone felt the presentation would be great as well as the taste. Easy and quick...will be made again and again, especially summer evenings.

    Simply outstanding. I used white wine vinegar instead of lemon juice, and topped with grated parm. I split a full recipe between two people for a light dinner. Fresh summer flavor's at their best.

    Very tasty and easy! This is a great way to use all those garden tomatoes and fresh basil. Perfect for a hot summer evening.

    Love this recipe - I doubled the shrimp and had this as a delicious & healthy dinner. I only added the bread to the serving I ate that night so that I could bring leftovers the next day and add the bread right when I plan to eat it. This will be on my regular summer recipe rotation.
