Tips from the Chef:
  1. This method is also known as poaching and that's truly what we are describing here. In the chef's world, if you boil your shrimp, you do an injustice to your shrimp. They should be gently poached, so they retain their juices and flavor. You want that to stay in your cooking product rather than transferring all shrimp taste and flavors to your water.
  2. Our Master Sommelier says- Pinot Grigio served very cold! Pinot Grigio has always been my wine equivalent to a light, refreshing beer (think more big American or Mexican beer brands) and when you're crushing a bunch of spicy shrimp; I want a wine that goes down easily and I don't need to think much to enjoy it.
