Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Sweet White Blend Marinade #SundaySupper with @GalloFamily

Posted by on Jul 13, 2014 in Recipe, SundaySupper | 20 comments

Outdoor dining is one of my favorite parts of summer! I love the laid back atmosphere, plus everything tastes better on a grill. Smokey flavors, friends, family, all paired with laughter and a glass of wine sounds like a perfect evening in my book.

Gallo Family Vineyards Sweet White Blend is the inspiration for this recipe. I love its simple sweetness and how it pairs with light, fresh, foods. The notes of peach and tropical fruit in this blend called to me and I knew I had to pair it with fresh Shrimp.

Grilled Shrimp and Pasta
Grilling Shrimp can seem like a challenge, but they cook fast and are easy to work with. The key really is in using raw shrimp. I know, I know, crazy, but sometimes people use already cooked shrimp and they do not take on flavor as well. I find that a simple marinade adds great flavor. Skewers make grilling easier and are a fun way to serve your shrimp.

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup Gallo Family Sweet White Blend Wine
  • 1/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Lime (Juiced)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon White Pepper (Fresh cracked if possible)
  • 1 teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (Adjust to your comfort level (optional))
  • 1lb Shrimp (Raw)
  • Cilantro (Optional, but I do like to throw in a few torn leaves myself.)

Note

Putting the shrimp onto the skewer before marinating them makes handling the shrimp easier when it comes time for grilling.

Directions

Step 1
Into a bowl, whisk together your wine, oil, juice and spices.
Step 2
Put your shrimp on to the skewers and into a large plastic bag.
Step 3
Pour your marinade over the shrimp skewers. Let sit for about 15 minutes.
Step 4
Grilled Shrimp
Grill at a high temperature until shrimp turn pink, flipping each skewer once in the process.

 

The shrimp in this dish develop such bright flavors from the citrus and wine marinade. They are perfect over a salad or paired with rice. In my case, I paired the shrimp with a simple pasta dressed in Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sprinkled with fresh basil and parsley. It was wonderful!

Cooking with wine, it is important to use a wine that you enjoy the flavor of, because you are infusing this flavor into your dish. Another bonus to cooking with wine is that it makes pairing simple. Go ahead, serve a glass of the very wine you infused into your dish. It will be perfect. Serving these shrimp with a chilled glass of the Gallo Family Sweet White Blend is just a flawless combination. You will be sure to wow your friends and family with this pairing.

    Oh yes, raw shrimp all the way – I can just imagine how amazing these skewers taste! And that is exactly one of my favorite parts of grilling and summer eating, too, Shannon :). I say it’s a Michigan thing (though many may disagree with me. Pretty sure that just means they didn’t grow up in Michigan). ;)
