PARTNER POST: Dive into the 120 days of summer with Santa Rita wines that pair perfectly with the foods of the season, straight off the grill.
If you love shrimp and summer grilling, this garlic and lime recipe is for you. Grab a bottle of wine and head outside.
Summer should be about slowing down a bit and making those long summer days memorable. My favorite way to create those laid back moments is by taking advantage of my grill while enjoying a glass of wine.
Here’s the deal, I love shrimp, seafood and more shrimp, and I especially enjoy a seafood dish that is wildly flavored. Seafood can be delicate and almost sweet yet you can also grab a boatload of chilies and the seafood will happily show off for you.
Today, I’ve decided to go with a garlic and lime grilled shrimp and have prepared a dish that is full of robust, earthy flavors. I started by marinating the shrimp in a mix using Badia’s complete seasoning blend as the base. Well let me just say, oh me – oh my, it’s good stuff! More garlic lime shrimp, please.
I didn’t want to overpower the shrimp with a dish loaded down with too many flavors, so I made a simple yet tasty side of cilantro quinoa salad. To complete the meal, I paired it all with a bottle of Santa Rita’s Sauvignon Blanc from their “120” series of beautiful wines. This Chilean Sauvignon Blanc is perfectly balanced with citrus and tropical fruity aroma and flavors, which makes it the ideal pairing with this Garlic Lime Shrimp recipe to round off this sumptuous meal.
