Grilled Shrimp Tartines with Curried Yogurt

Grilled shrimp with curry-spiced yogurt, radish, lemon, and cilantro, piled high on grilled slabs of bread. These tartines are well-suited for a laid-back lunch or dinner on the fly.


  • 12 ounces peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. olive oil
  • ¾ tsp. sea salt, divided
  • 4 (1-inch) thick slices of bakery bread
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 (7-oz.) container plain whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • ¼ tsp. paprika
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced radishes
  • ¼ cup freshly chopped cilantro
  • Optional: thinly sliced peppers, halved cherry tomatoes, pepitas


  1. Place shrimp, olive oil, ½ tsp. of the salt, and a pinch of black pepper in a bowl. Toss to coat.
  2. Heat a grill, grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp; cook 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside.
  3. Brush both sides of bread with remaining 1 tsp. olive oil. Place on grill or grill pan and toast 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Place lemon, flesh side-down, on pan and cook 2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Place Greek yogurt, curry powder, paprika, remaining ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of black pepper in a bowl. Whisk to combine.
  5. Spread yogurt mixture evenly on each piece of grilled/toasted bread. Top evenly with shrimp, radishes, cilantro, and additional toppings, if desired. Drizzle with lemon juice.
