1 large yellow (bell) pepper
1 tbsp. sesame oil

1 medium vine-ripened tomato
5oz. fat-free cream cheese, whipped
20 slices of Bruschetta (pre-packaged toasted Italian bread)
dash of sea salt & ground black pepper, to taste
Cook/grill frozen Shrimp according to package directions, but remove the tails. Set aside.

For relish, seed and coarsely chop the yellow pepper. Heat the oil in a pan, add the pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for approximately 8 minutes, until lightly colored and tender.
