        This fine wine goes well with just about any South
      Florida seafood dish.
        The Albariño white grape from Rias Baixas, Spain, has
      wonderful aromas and flavors like white peach, apple,
      almond, nectarine and even some tropical fruits.
        One note to remember, it is important to read the label
      on the bottle.

        To assure yourself that you are getting 100 percent
      Albariño, the wine labeled Rias Baixas will not contain
      any blending grapes.  This is not to say the regions
      surrounding Rias Baixas don’t have quality wine, they
      do. I would like you to try a true Albariño. I am sure it
      will be added to your list when choosing your next wine.
        One of my favorites is Paco & Lola Albariño 2017.
      This is a sustainable vineyard and always highly rated.
      It is complex with grapefruit, lime, white flowers, acacia
      and orange blossom; a great wine for these
      hot August days.

      peel, devein and drop the seafood in very
      hot (just below boiling) water for two to
      three minutes depending on the size of the
      shrimp, then remove and chill in ice water
      to stop the cooking. The good thing about
      this dish is there is no wrong recipe. It’s
      whatever you like.
        I mix in chopped red onion, serrano
      chilies, green tomato, avocado,
      cucumber  and  a  little  cilantro.  I’ve
      learned to like cilantro, because Cyndie
      said  I  should.  Mix  these  ingredients
      with the juices of limes, lemons, and
      oranges, some extra virgin olive oil, a
      dash of kosher salt and voila!
