I made some changes to this recipes by I using the shrimp on bread with pesto idea, but I deep fried my already peeled and deveined shrimp using the "Classic Fish and Chips" recipe on this website. Then I tossed the deep fried shrimp in pesto sauce, served it on slices of a french baguette, and it was great. A simple idea, but it doesn't get any better. So delicious. Five stars.



Loved this. I lightly floured and seasoned the shrimp then cooked them for 1 minute per side in very hot olive oil. Also spread the pesto on the bread rather than tossing the shrimp and omitted the butter. A very simple but tasty meal.



Made an awesome easy picnic meal.
