Sylt Island Shrimp on Toast

Sylter Krabbentoast
This shrimp salad recipe in the Sylt island style uses grapefruit for both container and flavoring. North Sea shrimp are a particularly small breed of shrimp which is very popular in Germany. Peeling these shrimp is very labor intensive. Miniature shrimp may also be substituted by regular-sized ones.
