ZESTY SHRIMP | FRUITY ROSÉ
No blushing wallflowers here! This assertive dry rosé shows concentrated strawberry and plum and an intense, lingering finish. Though its bold flavour would overwhelm delicate seafood, it’s terrific beside the hot chili and smoked cheddar in Spicy Lemon Shrimp and Smoky Cheese Grits.
La Vieille Ferme Rosé, France, $14.

Side Dish: Smoky cheese grits

Prep Tip:

If there is no time to thaw shrimp, just rinse frozen shrimp in a sieve under cold running water until ice crystals melt. Separate the shrimp, then drain well and pat dry.
