Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

 
Shrimp are at peak season off the Carolinas this time of year, so why not get yourself some and grill ’em? This is a fun and delicious recipe for sure. Serve over rice or quinoa with grilled veggies or a side salad. Your going to love these shrimp so much, why not grill extra and make shrimp tacos for lunch the next?

Wine Pairing: Most any light, crisp white wine will work, but for a special treat, try Patricia Green Cellars Sauvignon Blanc (750ml, $21.99) from the Dundee Hills AVA in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. There are only 100 acres of Sauvignon in all of Oregon. After tasting this beautiful wine, I bet they’ll soon be a lot more growing there.
