The vibrant flavors of Provence, a region in the South of France, shine in tonight’s dish—made with shrimp and classic ingredients like summer squash, sweet peppers, tomatoes, and olives. (Chefs, you may receive green zucchini, grey zucchini, or yellow squash—and red or yellow charm tomatoes!) For dipping into the saucy vegetables, we’re making garlic toasts—rubbing toasted baguette slices with a clove of garlic, then slathering them with a creamy aioli, a classic condiment of garlic-seasoned mayonnaise.

Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the aioli:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Medium dice the potatoes. Medium dice the squash. Cut off and discard the pepper stems; halve the peppers lengthwise. Remove and discard the ribs and seeds, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Halve the baguettes. Using the side of your knife, smash the olives; remove and discard the pits. Roughly chop the olives. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Peel the garlic. Finely chop 1 clove; smash with the side of your knife until it resembles a paste (or use a zester). Leave the remaining clove whole. In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise, the juice of 2 lemon wedges, and as much of the garlic paste as you’d like. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook the potatoes:
2 Cook the potatoes:

Add the potatoes to the pot of boiling water. Cook 9 to 11 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot.

Cook the vegetables:
3 Cook the vegetables:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the squash. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the tomato paste and peppers; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until dark red. Add the tomatoes, verjus, and 1 cup of water. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Transfer to the pot of cooked potatoes. Stir to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside in a warm place. Rinse and wipe out the pan.

4 Make the garlic toasts:

In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Working in batches, add the baguettes, cut side down. Toast, occasionally pressing with a spatula, 3 to 4 minutes on the first side, or until lightly browned. Flip and toast, occasionally pressing with a spatula, 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned. (If the pan seems dry, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil before flipping.) Transfer to a work surface. When cool enough to handle, rub the cut sides with the whole garlic clove, then spread with half the aioli. Discard the garlic clove.

Cook the shrimp:
5 Cook the shrimp:

Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In the same pan, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until opaque and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

Serve with the garlic toasts and remaining aioli on the side. Enjoy!
