Grill the bread on both both sides. Rub one side with a garlic clove. Sprinkle olive oil over this side, and spread with a brush or your fingers. Set aside.
Fry the capers in the capers in the olive oil for a minute or so, then add the shrimp. Turn the heat to high and sauté on high for 3-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and then put the shrimp and capers into a large bowl.
Add the celery, tomato, radicchio balsamic vinegar and mix well. add a little olive oil and mix again.
Slather the mixture on the grilled bread and serve.
