This recipe was created for beauty guru Bobbi Brown by F&W Magazine, published in the January, 2005 edition, Grace Parisi gets its bold flavors from ingredients like chipotles, grilled onions and citrus juice. "Bobbi Bares All" Grilled shrimp needs a tart white for contrast, one with enough fruit to balance the heat of the chiles and the sharpness of the citrus. That means Sauvignon Blanc, especially lively examples from South Africa, such as the 2003 Neil Ellis or the 2003 Kanu.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, combine the orange juice with the garlic, adobo sauce and 1 tablespoon of the lime juice.
  2. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper; let sit at room temperature for only 10 minutes.(If you let it marinate in citrus too long - it will cook itself!).

  4. Thread the onion slices on skewers to hold them together.
  5. Brush the onions with some of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Grill the slices over high heat, turning once, until softened and charred, about 3 minutes per side.

  9. Season with salt and pepper.
