    Montana Heart Song's Note:

    Served in a Thai Restaurant in Paris. A memorable meal, I should say meals. I ordered this each time I went.This recipe is for 6. I guarantee you will enjoy this. I asked if this was a Thai recipe. "No madam, this is French. You are in Paris."

    1. 1
      Make a small slit down the curve and pull the vein out, split the shrimp leaving the tail on. Devine all shrimp.
    2. 2
      In shallow flat pan, add lemon juice and place shrimp in pan like a butterfly. Flatten with a plate on top and weight it down.I refrigerate for 1 hour. It might not take that long but I like the lemon flavor.
    3. 3
      In a saute pan add olive oil, pepper, salt.
    4. 4
      Bring the heat up and put in the flattened shrimp. Shake and turn until the shrimp start to turn pink.

      Add the wine and shake and turn.

    8. 8
      Spread on slices of French Bread.
    9. 9
      Turn oven to 400º.
    10. 10
      Place bread on a flat pan, toast until just barely toasted. Take out.
    11. 11
      Place a tiger shrimp on each slice with a slice of mozzarella cheese on top.If you want to use a toothpick to hold the shrimp flat in the middle you may.
    12. 12
      Broil until cheese is melted around shrimp like a fluffy pillow.
    13. 13
      I lower my rack to about 6 inches below the broiler.

      You have a winner here! There is such a ballet of flavor between the cayenne, lemon, and garlic. I made this twice. I would recommend taking the tails off - -as well, I think I like a thinner slice of french bread so that the shrimp is more in the limelight. The 2nd time I made this, instead of using tiger shrimp and french bread, I used a smaller shrimp and the cocktail bread, so that each slice was an individual hors douvre. This is a keeper of a recipe!!!
