here is our favorite shrimp recipe to pair with rosé

Cilantro lime shrimp

* 1 lb. ruby red wild-caught gulf shrimp
* 1/4 cup cider vinegar
* pinch of salt
* small bunch of fresh cilantro
* juice of one lime
* 1/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan sea salt

Bring a large pot of water just to a boil. Add 1/4 cup cider vinegar and a pinch of salt. Bring the water to a boil.

Drop the fresh or frozen shrimp into the water. Cook the shrimp with the heads and shells on.

Boil the shrimp until a few start floating on top of the water.

Drain the shrimp in a colander and shock immediately in an ice bath by submerging the colander in the ice bath and then take out immediately. This will stop the shrimp from overcooking.

Peel and de-vein the shrimp and rinse out under cold running water.

Finely chop the fresh cilantro and squeeze the juice from lime. Place the cooked, peeled, and de-vined shrimp in a lovely bowl, pour a few tablespoons of the lime juice into the bowl, sprinkle with pink Himalayan sea salt and 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. Toss. Serve with wine and enjoy.
