Food Video: Classic Pesto+ Toast with pesto, shrimp and garlic

Photobucket

...I've been craving pesto everything lately, with extra garlic! Don't know why but I just think you can add pesto to almost anything and it makes it taste delicious! And as you know already I get super inspired by food videos (I have been dying to start making my own)...! My little secret with pesto, if you have any leftover you can use an ice cube bucket and freeze it for a couple of weeks, and have pesto ready at any time!

...but for now, how about making some fresh pesto, sautee garlic and shrimp and make some delicious toasts for a quick dinner with wine? Here is the recipe:

Ingredients {4 toast}
* 4 tablespoons green pesto (see video)
* 4 huge shrimp or 8 medium-
* 4 halves of bread toasted

* 1 tablespoon olive oil

Preparation
1. Prepare pesto.
2. In heated pan pour oil and cook shrimp for 1.5 minutes on each side (large shrimp) or 1 minute is you are using smaller shrimps.
3. While frying shrimp, sprinkle them with sea salt and add the sliced ​​garlic.
4. Spread pesto on toast, place shrimp and sliced ​​garlic. You can add some pine nuts as garnish. Sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper....pour yourself a glass of Chardonnay... and voila you are all set!!!

It's like you took everything I loved and made it into a sandwich. Add a side of dark chocolate and puppies and I don't really need anything else.
