Chef Damien Cavicchi is heating things up this summer with his recipe for Grilled Shrimp with Spicy Jalapeño Chimichurri.

For a delicious pairing, serve this dish with Biltmore Century White. The wine is refreshing, with hints of tropical and citrus fruit, plus a nice balance of sweetness to tame a bit of the spicy heat in this sizzling summer favorite!

Serves 4


Preparation Instructions

Preheat grill, grill pan, or iron skillet to medium-high heat. Grill jalapeños until black on sides, about 5 minutes. Place peppers in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap to loosen outer skin. Remove black outer skin, stem, and seeds. Finely chop peppers. In the bowl of a food processor, combine cilantro, parsley, onions, peppers, garlic, cumin, and lime zest and juice. With motor running, add ½ cup oil in a steady stream. Stop processor to scrape down sides of bowl, and pulse a few more times to achieve a medium-coarse texture. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss shrimp with remaining oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill about 2 minutes per side on the hottest part of the grill, until pink and opaque. Serve immediately with chimichurri sauce.
