Wine Pairings

NUTTY CITRUS SHRIMP
Pair it with: Some Spanish zest.
The crisp, bone-dry white wines of northwestern Spain have an amazing intrinsic affinity with all shellfish, even when faced with the peanut and lime elements present here. It’s just zesty enough to work.
Our pick: Alvinte Albarino, Spain, $15.

Side dish: Purple slaw with toasted ramen
