Cilantro Lime Marinated Shrimp for #SundaySupper

Game day will soon be upon us: are you ready? I have to admit: the game itself isn’t usually what I get pumped up about. Rather, I get excited to plan the menu for friends and family to enjoy (and to watch the commercials). Putting together a great game day spread can be a challenge. You want to make it simple to assemble, and to include foods that are easy to eat for partygoers. But you don’t want it to be boring either! That is why the cilantro lime marinated shrimp I have to share today is just what you need!

Yes, I could top my table with some of the classics, but for today’s game day gathering with the folks of Sunday Supper I wanted to contribute something a little different. My game day usually involves drinking wine (rather than beer), so creating a dish that could perfectly pair with wine is essential. Enter: cilantro lime marinated shrimp, paired with Gallo’s Pinot Grigio. Our Sunday Supper crew has put together a plethora of food and wine combinations in celebration of the game day, so you are sure to find a dish that pairs perfectly with your favorite wine.

Why this pairing? Gallo’s Pinot Grigio features the crisp flavors of apples, peach, and citrus. These flavors marry well with seafood and other acidic foods. This dish has both! One of my husband’s favorite game day foods always involves shrimp. He loves a classic shrimp cocktail, but I figured this combination would bring something a bit unique to the table. You’ve got your herbs, the zing of lime, the savory hint of garlic…it’s a light and tasty combination your football party guests will hopefully enjoy as much as we do. What I also love about this dish is that I can prepare it the day before; all I have to do on the day of the party is scoop the shrimp into a bowl or platter to serve! You really can’t mess up this shrimp; you literally combine all the ingredients together and let them sit in the refrigerator. I love a dish like that…don’t you?
