FOR THE SHRIMP, COMBINE:
FOR THE BREAD, MELT:
Whether or not to remove shrimp tails is a matter of personal preference, but leaving them on gives the shrimp a prettier, more dramatic appearance.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the shrimp, combine lemon juice, oil, garlic, turmeric, cayenne, and salt in a shallow dish. Place shrimp in marinade, flipping to coat. Marinate shrimp 5 minutes, or up to 30 minutes. Thread shrimp onto skewers.
Grill shrimp until charred on both sides, basting with marinade, about 2 minutes per side.
For the bread, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cayenne and cook until fragrant, 1 minute.
Dip one side of baguette slices in butter mixture. Grill slices, butter side down, about 1 minute. Remove slices from grill; top with zest and cilantro.
