Ingredients
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined medium shrimp, tails removed
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
  • ½ tsp Sriracha
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1 French baguette, sliced into 10-12 pieces
  • 2 ripe avocados, fruit scraped out
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 tbsp goat cheese, crumbled
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven broiler to high.
  2. In a large bowl, combine shrimp marinade: 1½ tbsp olive oil, chili sauce, Sriracha, zest and juice of 1 lime, cilantro, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Whisk to combine. Toss in shrimp and evenly coat with marinade. Set aside.
  3. Heat 1 tsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add diced pineapple. Cook for 8-10 minutes, flipping two or three times to caramelize all sides. Remove and let the pineapple slightly cool.
  4. Prepare guacamole by removing fruit from avocados and placing in a large bowl. Use a fork to thoroughly mash avocado. Add diced red pepper, cilantro, lime juice, cooled pineapple, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  5. Using the same large skillet, return to medium-high heat. One hot, add shrimp and cook for ~2 minutes per side, until cooked through.
  6. Brush bread slices evenly with remaining olive oil (~1½ tbsp). Broil for 1-2 minutes on each side or until toasted.
  7. Spread guacamole evenly on toasted bread slices. Distribute shrimps evenly (~3 per crostini). Crumble goat cheese evenly over top. Serve!
