Recipe: Lomo-Wrapped Shrimp with Grilled Bread, Pistou, and Smoked Paprika Vinaigrette

 

Sure, bacon-wrapped shrimp is tasty, but the finger food's dated status precludes us from ever preparing it for guests, lest they be reminded of hairspray-shellacked 'dos and other '80s trappings that are best forgotten.

 

Thankfully, chef John Taus of the Corner in Philadelphia has pulled this combination back into the present: he retires the bacon in exchange for tissue-thin slices of lomo embuchado, a dry-cured pork tenderloin from Spain. A parsley-based pistou and fiery paprika vinaigrette round out this elegant, Mediterranean-inspired update.
