Mini Bites: Pinot Grigio Cooked Shrimp in Endive Leaf Appetizer


Delicious and easy appetizer for a romantic date night, outdoor dinner party or a simple snack

Serves 12

12 Large shrimp, shelled and deveined
3 Endive leaves
1 cup White wine
½ cup Orange pepper, small dice
½ cup Red onion, small dice
Chives, small dice
Lemon thyme leaves
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsp. Olive oil

1. Cut the end off of the endive, discard outer leaves. Separate leaves and place on a platter.

2. Place large sauté pan on medium heat. Lightly coat pan with olive oil. Once the oil warms, add red onion and red pepper and sauté for 2 minutes. Add wine and cook for another 2 minutes then add shrimp. Cook shrimp in wine for 3 minutes a side, until pink and cooked through. Remove shrimp and reserve in a bowl.  Let the wine cook for another 5 minutes. In the mean time, dice each shrimp into large pieces. Spoon 3 – 4 shrimp into endive cups and top with a spoonful of wine sauce with diced vegetables.

3. Garnish with chives and lemon thyme and enjoy.

    Thanks so much, Tes. Shrimp in white wine is delicious for the endive cups or in pasta with light tomato sauce. Enjoy and let me know how the recipe goes!

    My partner and I are grilling these shrimp for our dinner party. I don’t like thyme but will use the chives and add a little garlic.
