Monday Eats: Wine Swimming Shrimps And Rice
Wine swimming shrimps is one my favorite dishes. There may be other recipes similar to it. I really don't know. This one was a concoction I came up with on one of those "what-should-I-cook-for-dinner" days. As I rummaged through the refrigerator, I gathered ingredients, deciding on a light and delicate flavor for a hot summer day.
It's quick to prepare and requires no special talent for making a delicious meal. I've made it with rise or angel hair spaghetti but have yet to decide which one is my favorite.
Ingredients (for one)
- Butter (about 1/4 or less of a stick of butter)
- Garlic (crushed)
- Shrimps (8 - 10, depending upon your shrimp count)
- lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
- Riesling wine, preferable sweet. (Chateau Ste. Michael makes a wonderful sweet harvest wine.)
I use I a crepes pan. Melt butter and add the garlic. I like to mix the garlic with the butter until the garlic turns a light tan. Add shrimps. I use frozen or thawed. When it's pink on one side, I turn it over. Just before it turns pink on the second side, I add lemon juice & wine and mix until this very thin sauce is hot. Add the shrimp to the plate and pour the garlicky and wine over the rice and the shrimp.
I am by far NOT a professional cook. I simply love to eat good food and so I make up my own or use the recipes of others.
Give this a try if you love shrimps. Would love to know if you do cook this wine swimming shrimp. And don't forget to let me know. Share your own quick and easy wine with shrimp dish.
