Serving Size: About 8 toasts


Ingredients:

For Grilling:

1 Himalayan salt block


Shrimp:

1 lb large shrimp, cleaned

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

1 teaspoon chili powder

Grilled Bread:

1 french baguette, sliced

3 tablespoons butter, melted


Avocado Mash:

2 avocados, pitted and mashed

2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 clove of garlic, minced

Salt and pepper, to taste


Cucumber Mango Salsa:

1/2 English Cucumber, seeds removed, finely diced

2 champagne mangoes, pitted and finely diced

1/2 red onion, finely diced

1 serrano pepper, seeded and minced

1 lime, juiced

1/2 cup cilantro, minced

1 teaspoon kosher salt


Directions:

1. Place the salt block on a cool grill and heat the grill to a medium high heat. Allow the salt block

to warm gradually as the grill heats up.

2. Prepare the shrimp by cleaning and deveining, as necessary.

3. Meanwhile, prepare all of the other ingredients. The shrimp will grill very quickly, so have all the

other recipe prep completed. Slice the baguette into long, diagonal slices, and brush with the

melted butter.

4. Prepare the cucumber mango salsa by finely dicing all the ingredients, and mixing to combine.

5. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with the lime juice, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover and

set aside.

6. Just before you're ready to grill the shrimp, grill the slices of buttered bread until grill marks

begin to appear and the bread is toasted.

7. In a medium bowl, drizzle the shrimp with olive oil, pepper and chili powder Toss to coat.. Once

the salt block is very hot, place the shrimp on the salt block and cook for 2-3 minutes turning once

with tongs until the shrimp are pink and opaque. Actual timing may vary by the size of the shrimp

and the heat of the grill, so go by sight and touch.

8. Immediately before serving, spread the avocado mash on the toasts, top with a few spoonfuls

of salsa, and top with the grilled shrimp.

9. After the salt block cools, care for your salt block according to the package instructions.
