A light dinner and a note on Siegerrebe wine from De Vine Vineyards

with 2 comments

The Wife wanted something light, so:

Dressing I mix in a little jar so I can shake it:

1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
good pinch of Maldon salt
about 1 Tbsp ground pepper
about 2 tsp smoked paprika
about 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Shake well and hold in readiness.

In large bowl, put:

1 handful (fairly large) baby arugula
1 handful (likewise) baby romaine
2 yellow bell peppers chopped
12-14 San Marzano cherry tomatoes, trisected
(bunch of scallions chopped: I would do this but omitted in deference to The Wife)

Then cook the prawns:

300g tiger prawns, peeled and cut in half
1 Tbsp butter
6-8 cloves garlic (and we’re now getting the hard-stem red Russian garlic, very easy to peel and delicious), peeled and minced

Mince garlic and let sit 15 minutes.

Melt butter in 11 7/8″ carbon-steel pan, add garlic, sauté for a couple of minutes, then add prawns, salt them, and stir as they cook. When done, add to bowl of salad greens, shake jar containing dressing and pour over, then toss well.

I had this with a glass of De Vine Siegerrebe, and they’re right: it’s very like Gewurtztraminer, which I like.

Since we split it, 4 WW points each.
