Total Time:






medium head radicchio, about 8 ounces


medium peeled and deveined shrimp


fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves


thick slices sourdough or country bread

  1. Heat oven to 450°F. From 1
    or 2 lemons, squeeze 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, and set aside. Halve, core
    and thinly slice 1 medium head of radicchio. Thinly slice 1 bulb fennel
    and 1 red onion, and place on a large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. On the baking sheet, toss fennel and red onion with 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Roast until tender, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  3. Cook 6 slices bacon in a large skillet until crisp and transfer to paper towel. Let the bacon cool for a few minutes, then break into pieces. Season 3/4 pounds medium peeled and deveined shrimp with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper.
  4. From the skillet, discard all but 1 tablespoon bacon fat drippings. Add shrimp to skillet and cook on medium-high heat until opaque throughout, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  5. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 teaspoon sugar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Toss dressing with sliced radicchio, roasted vegetables, cooked bacon, shrimp and 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves.
  6. Toast 4 thick slices of sourdough or country bread. Serve salad over toasts and top with shaved Manchego cheese, if desired.
