My spam folder wasn’t kind to me this week and it wasn’t liver this time. It was shrimp broth. Why isn’t this being kind to me? Well, I had a really bad reaction to iodine once and the Doctor said ‘that’s it! No more shrimp for you!’ (I could be paraphrasing Seinfeld there). However he said it, he meant I could never eat shrimp again. Which I hate, because shrimp is just too darn good. But I don’t want another run to the Emergency Room where I can’t breathe (it was really scary there for a while. Benadryl is a godsend!) so, I won’t touch shrimp again.
My friend Peggy loves shrimp too, so I gave her this recipe to try. She said it was really good, up to the point where it mentioned what wines to use.
So apparently Frederico Paterina is a Spanish wine. I’d never heard of it, but then I’m not incredibly picky about my wine. That’s Fred’s job. The other one isn’t a wine like I thought, Ensalada a la Almoraina is a Spanish salad from the Andalucia area of Spain. The more I read about that area, the more I want to go there. Maybe next summer I can convince Fred to go.
Until next time, toodles!
