This appetizer was inspired by RSC#7. Hope you enjoy it. It's a little time consuming but tasty. If you can find the collasal shrimp even better.

These are so good we decided that we could make a meal out of them. The marinade gives the shrimp a nice flavor and the mix of ingredients for the bruschetta is outstanding. I did cut back on the baking time as recommended by the other reviewer and left the olives out as a personal preference. Thanks for the keeper, Baby Kato.

I was going to rate this 5 stars, but the baking time for the shrimps is way too long, and to then leave it in the oven as instructed (the oven retains its high heat!!) will ruin them. The recipe is basically delicious, but those skewers should be in the oven for maybe 3 - 4 mins. at that heat, then taken out. Rather keep them in a warming oven.
