Shrimp Tapas

Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc

About this Wine Pairing Recipe

Part of the fun of having a tapas party is getting creative, so instead of a traditional shrimp cocktail, we decided to go in a different direction and make shrimp cocktail sliders. I love shrimp cocktails at parties, especially in the summer months, but if you’re up and about and have a glass of wine in one hand, they can be a little hard to enjoy; which is why I thought it would be perfect to pull everything together into an easy-to-handle bite with a dinner roll and a fresh crunch of lettuce.

To make prep a little easier, I bought pre-cooked shrimp from the seafood counter of my supermarket and I left the tails on, even though they’re going on a sandwich. You could easily remove the tails before serving, I just love the presentation of shrimp with the tails.

These little sandwiches are super delicious and they turn out so pretty, too! They’re even better with a glass of your favorite Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, or even Sauvignon Blanc, so don’t forget to pour a few glasses as your guests load up their plate with delicious summer tapas.
