Our video series "Dine & Wine" showcases different recipes and cocktail mixes using Duplin Winery wines and gourmet products. Join our host, Frank, as he gets the dish on our Duplin family's favorite eats and drinks. If you have ideas for the show are looking for a recipe, let us know in the comments. Cheers!
We should all be as lucky as Mary Kay, who works at our North Myrtle Beach location. “My house is two blocks from the seafood market,” she told us when she shared her no-fuss recipe for shrimp scampi. If you never think of seafood as a fast and easy weeknight meal, Mary Kay’s shrimp scampi will change your mind.
Mary Kay buys fresh shrimp already peeled and deveined and then marinates it overnight in the most simple flavor enhancer ever, our Goin’ Coastal wine. This blush lends its slightly floral sweetness to the shrimp, no extra herbs and spices required.
Next day, Mary Kay drops the shrimp with a little garlic, basil and roasted red peppers into a hot skillet while quick-cooking angel hair pasta boils in a pot. The final touch is a splash of Duplin Carlos white wine in the sauté pan before Mary Kay spoons the shrimp over the pasta. Remember, the cook gets to sneak a few shrimp before putting the dish on the table.
Serve Mary Kay’s shrimp scampi with Duplin Carlos, one of our driest white wines. We pick the grapes for this wine before they fully ripen to produce a light body, kind of like a Pinto Grigio, and fruity but soft flavor. Carlos pairs well with more delicate seafood dishes like grilled fish and seared scallops.
