Tom Yum Shrimp & Shiitake Crostini
This recipe came to life when I was trying to figure out what else I could do with this leftover shrimp mixture I had after I made shrimp wontons. With about a nearly whole French baguette left near my fruit bowl, I figured you can’t really mess up anything on toasted sliced bread so I might as well give it a go. This recipe is easy to do, not time consuming, & let’s be honest, anything tom yum is delicious. Let me reiterate the fact that the tom yum will make your tum go yum. Yes, I just made a tom yum rhyme. It’s my blog, I can rhyme if I want to. In all seriousness, this crostini is amazing. My dad approves of this message, so you just definitely know it’s legit.
This crostini is the perfect appetizer for a dinner party or just for fancy snacktimes for homemakers. Reheating them in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds on the high will warm them right up, leaving the crunchiness intact, given that you toasted it correctly. If for some reason the crunchiness gets dampened–because you can’t toast crostini correctly–you have two options: 1. imagine that it’s crunchy or 2. put it in the toaster oven for a minute on “toast”.
Although this recipe is quite easy to do, the cleanup is as tedious as spilling ground coffee beans on the floor & trying to vacuum it. True story – our apartment smelled like coffee whenever we vacuumed so that was a plus. The point is, unless you have a maid or a lot of time on your hands, the cleanup for this is a drag, so make it with a partner & assign them to chopping the onions & then dish-washing.

Some time in January, Josh took me to Sushi Kinoya to satisfy my absurd sushi addiction. I didn’t think the pictures looked that great from any of my new albums from 2014, so you’re just going to have to stalk them on your own.
