Recipe by By The Lake
Grated lime zest and lime juice provide a burst of flavor in this recipe and echo the citrusy palate of the Torrontés. The wine’s acidity balances the assertive flavors of cilantro, jalapeño chili and green onions, while the shrimp and mayonnaise add richness to the dish but won’t overwhelm the wine. You can cook the shrimp on an outdoor grill, as directed below. Alternatively, use a stovetop grill pan, or sauté the shrimp in a little olive oil or canola oil. Williams-Sonoma
