Next time you want to have something quick and easy, zesty and delicious, try making some shrimp tacos.
No, not from frozen ingredients, but this dish is almost as simple to create. Use fresh coastal shrimp, lettuce, salsa, black beans, blackened seasonings and you’re good to go. Oh, let’s not forget soft tortillas to hold it all together and, of course, a glass or two of Vinho Verde.
Located in the northwest corner of Portugal, the Vinhos Verdes region is unique in both landscape and wine. The region is exposed to the sea in the west and mountains in the east. The white wine from this region is crisp and vibrant, with a spritz of citrus fruit and minerals on the nose and palate. The finish is clean and refreshing, with balanced acidity. The Salsus, Vinho Verde is an excellent expression of the region, and the type of wine it produces.
The Salsus, Vinho Verde, will pair well with summertime salads, most seafood dishes, and Asian cuisine or as an aperitif.
The Salsus, Vinho Verde, is available at the Fresh Market in Cary – for under ten dollars.
