A tantalizing combination of textures and flavors, this appetizer is a great replacement for shrimp cocktail on the holiday buffet.
1 loaf French bread
2 ounces Gruyere cheese
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 teaspoons McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
1/2 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Basil, Mediterranean
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Gourmet™ Cayenne Pepper
Slice bread on the diagonal into 24 (1/2-inch thick) slices. Place on baking sheet; broil until lightly toasted on both sides. Using a vegetable peeler, shave cheese into very thin slices. Set aside.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook and stir 2 minutes or just until shrimp turn pink. Add wine, vanilla, basil and cayenne pepper; cook 2 to 4 minutes. Remove shrimp from pan. Boil sauce 1 minute; remove pan from heat and whisk in remaining butter, 1 tablespoon at a time. The butter must melt gradually to form a creamy sauce.
To assemble appetizers, brush toasted bread slices with warm sauce from skillet. Top with 1 to 2 thin slices of cheese, then 1 to 2 shrimp (depending on size); brush with additional sauce. Garnish with roasted red pepper and chives, if desired.
Test Kitchen Tip: If desired, add chopped roasted red peppers and snipped chives, for garnish.
