Wine Pairing For Grilled Shrimp

Just a quick note this morning, Julian who pens the fantastic Vino in Love wine blog asked me to collaborate with him on a food/wine pairing. It’s summer and perfect for white wine and fish. I prepared two dishes one is my shrimp scampi that I prepared on the grill. I always have a hard time picking just the right wine to go with a meal, there is a real science to it and this is why I rely on the experts like Julian to help me make just the right choice. I love following the various wine blogs and learn so much from each. Here is a link to Julian’s post. Β Thank you Julian as always I enjoyed our collaborations and learn so much from you. Salud!!

  1. These shrimp look amazingly delicious. Do you have a recipe for them? Would love to prepare them.
    I’ll take a look at the wine recommendation now πŸ™‚

    • Yes, Julian posted the recipe. I am going to see if my local wine merchant has the wine he recommended and going to make them this week. Sounds like a perfect wine for the dish. Thank you.

  2. I enjoyed our collaboration, too πŸ™‚
    It was lots of fun working with you on this food & wine pairing for grilled shrimp.
    The shrimp taste really good. I loved eating them and it wasn’t that complicated to prepare them!

    • Oh I did too, it’s always so good to work with you and a real learning experience for me.Thank you!

  3. I love shrimp with a crisp white wine and yours look divine. I’ll go and look at the recipe. Great photo too – I adore the pink, purple and green…

  5. Beautiful photo. I’m not a shrimp person but will check out the recipe. Maybe for a special treat for my husband. I still struggle with wine pairings too. Sometimes I’ll pick a wine then come up with a dish to celebrate it. One of my favorite restaurants is Telepan mainly because they manage spot on pairings every time.

    • I am definitely challenged when it comes to pairings. I never really understood the science but find it fascinating. I look to the wine experts for pairings. Never been to Telepan, sounds great. So nice meeting you yesterday/ Thanks so much!

      • So nice to meet you too! Thanks for inviting us into your beautiful home!

  6. That looks absolutely divine! Gorgeous photos! I wish I knew more about wine pairings. It’s something I want to learn more about and need to devote more time to. πŸ™‚

    • I have been trying, I know exactly what you mean. It’s hard to do it right, for me it’s like a stab in the dark. Thanks so much.

  9. What a great idea to do some wine-pairing! That’s always one thing I find hard about food, knowing what wine to pair it with. These shrimp look amazing, so I think I’m gonna head over to Julian and check out the wine!

    August 12, 2013
    • Thank you, yes I too am challenged when it comes to wine pairing. Julian has a great site, I am learning so much.

  10. Shrimp scampi is one of my very favorite dishes!!! And really tricky for a wine pairing. I’m heading over to his site right now πŸ™‚

    August 12, 2013
    • It’s one of mine also and yes, it certainly can be a bit tricky. I always trust Julian’s recommendations. He is always spot on!

      August 12, 2013
  11. I am not a wine drinker, but I will have the shrimps! They look so delectable. πŸ˜€

    August 12, 2013
    • Thanks so much Fae, the shrimp are delicious with or without the wine!

      August 12, 2013
  12. I love shrimp scampi and yours looks like a real treat. Paired with the wine I’m sure it’s even better. Going to check out the recipe now πŸ™‚

    August 12, 2013
    • I always did scampi on the stove top finishing in the oven but it’s so so good on the grill. I highly recommend trying it, Thanks so much.

      August 12, 2013
  13. Fantastic, Suzanne! I love Vino in Love, and that he asked you to contribute; beautifully done.

    August 12, 2013
  14. Brava, Suzanne! I cannot say that I’m tempted πŸ˜‰ but the picture is really great!!! πŸ™‚

    Shrimp and wine–fantastic! You do a lot of collaborating and socializing around food πŸ™‚ You mention enjoying wine sites and I just found this one last night. Not so much about food, but a good primer for a wine novice such as myself. Also just lov the name: http://thewinewankers.com.au/

    August 19, 2013
    • Thanks Liz, yes I love collaborations it’s great for learning on both ends and I think is very informative. I love winewanters, vinoinlove, and for a site that mixes wine info and food http://florastable.com/
      I am totally a wine novice, love to drink it but am miserably deficient on real knowledge about it. Learning a lot!

  17. I just ate lunch but am hungry for dinner as I would like to make your Scampi recipe tonight. I like how you marinate the shrimp AND prepare an additional sauce – sometimes I feel my shrimp come out rubbery when I saute them on the stove – think I will throw them on the grill instead. Looks very, very tasty. Nice photo!!

    August 27, 2013
    • It’s very tasty, I prepare them both stove and grill. If I do on the stove I use both the cooktop and oven (broiler). Using the grill is fantastic though. Thanks so much and I hope you enjoy!
