Not your average bruschetta recipe! For a special twist, I added shrimp, avocado, and good quality basil pesto.


  • 5-6 firm Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 lb shrimp, peeled and cooked
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 8 oz baby mozzarella cheese balls, halved
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 lemon, juice of
  • olive oil
  • 3 tbsp good quality basil pesto
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan, more if you like
  • 1 French baguette, sliced and toasted


  1. Place the diced tomatoes in a colander for 10 mins to drain its juices. Meanwhile, prepare the remaining ingredients.
  2. Slice the shrimp horizontally through the middle (see the picture).
  3. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, shrimp, green onions, avocado, garlic and mozzarella. Season with salt and pepper. Add the lemon juice, 2 tbsp olive oil, basil pesto and Parmesan. Toss gently to combine.
  4. Transfer the shrimp bruschetta into a serving bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hr. When ready to serve, toss the bruschetta gently to freshen. Toast the bread slices and serve next to it. Enjoy!


  • You can serve the bruschetta immediately, but for deeper flavor, cover and refrigerate for 1 hr.If you prefer, add the avocado immediately before serving to avoid it browning.
