Did you know May is Mediterranean Food Month? We already celebrated with a Mediterranean Salad, a Mediterranean Ice Cream Party (the post will be up by the end of the month!) and these lovely Red Wine-Marinated Shrimp. They are wonderful - and they disappear when given to guests. Score!
This was the first time using wine in a marinade, so I was a bit worried about what it would do to the meat - but it worked out great.
Red Wine-Marinated Shrimp (printable recipe)
1/2 cup red wine
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup white onion, grated
4 teaspoons garlic, minced
2 teaspoons dry oregano
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
3 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup pineapple juice
60 medium shrimp - defrosted, peeled and deveined
1. Combine red wine, olive oil, onion, garlic, oregano, paprika, pepper and salt. Set in fridge for 1 hour.
2. Add pineapple juice and shrimp to marinade. Set in fridge for 45 minutes.
3. Skewer shrimp, making sure to not overcrowd. Cook over med-high heat until shrimp are pink and cooked through - about 5 minutes on each side was all it took for ours.
