- Cut the baguette in half, creating 2 pieces.
- Cut both halves in half horizontally, creating 4 bruschetta’s.
- In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and saffron. Set aside until needed.
- Segment an orange – slice off both ends of the orange and remove the peel, making sure to also remove as much of the bitter pith as possible. Cut it in half exactly and along the central fibers and membranes.
- Use a sharp knife to remove the flesh from in between the membrane to create presentable orange segments.
- Peel the shrimp by removing the heads and central shell but leaving the tail intact for a prettier presentation.
- Run a sharp knife along the back of each shrimp, from the tail towards the head. Do not cut too deep, just along the surface to expose the vein. Remove and discard.
- Drizzle the shrimp with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
- Place a nonstick pan over high heat and let it get very hot.
- Add the shrimp and sauté for about 30 seconds on each side, until golden.
- When ready, transfer to a plate and set aside.
- Place another pan over medium heat. Add the butter and let it melt.
- Add the baguette pieces in 2 batches and toast until nice and golden.
- When ready, spread them out on a clean working surface.
- Brush the cheese mixture over the cut sides of the bread.
- To each piece, add slices of mozzarella, 3 shrimps, 3 orange segments and some spring onions.
