    I recently made a large batch of homemade Limoncello. When I say large… I’m talking two large jugs of limoncello.

    While there is no such thing as “too much limoncello,” I felt like I needed to figure out how to use it in unconventional methods, like using it in a savory dish like Limoncello Shrimp Crostini.

    Make sure you PIN Limoncello Shrimp Crostini!

    Limoncello Shrimp Crostini isn’t just liquor and seafood over bread. Instead, sugar from homemade simple syrup, blended into lemon infused vodka, reduces down to a beautiful pale yellow agrodolce.

    What is a agrodole? Agrodole is an Italian sauce that is made up of sweet and sour elements. The name comes from “agro” which means sour, and “dolce” which means sweet.

    It is traditionally made using vinegar and sugar, and boiling it down until it reduces.

    I added thick slices of garlic, which  caramelize and add flavor and texture. The last piece of Limoncello Shrimp Crostini are succulent shrimp and freshly snipped parsley.

    Spooned over day-old crusty bread and you have an appetizer worthy of gracing any table at a 5-star restaurant.

    For my Limoncello Shrimp Crostini, I use a medium sized shrimp because I like having a piece of shrimp in each bite, but feel free to use a large, jumbo or colossal shrimp.

    Use a heavy bottomed pan to prevent to prevent the sugars in the sauce from burning. This dish can also be served in bread bowl, similar to my Creamy Shrimp Scampy Bread Bowl.

    It is a little too sweet to serve over pasta and serve for a main course. Leave out the garlic, parsley and shrimp and drizzle over vanilla bean ice cream for dessert.

    This is just one of the many recipes that use limoncello! Apart from using it in a drink, you can incorporate it into multiple recipes.

    Cakes, cupcakes, cookies, trifles, tiramisu, pies, tarts, ice cream, macarons, cheesecake, biscotti, even in popsicles!
