Laura’s Food Pick : Cilantro Lime Shrimp Rice Bowl


Cilantro Lime Shrimp Rice Bowl & Verdelho

Coming from Australia, this pale wine brings plentiful fruit flavors without being overbearingly sweet. It’s clean, smooth and easy to drink nature makes it an obvious choice for summer.


The balance of fruit and acidity makes this a great wine to sip on it’s own, but it really sings when paired with seafood. These shrimp bowls are a super easy dinner pick, and are delicious!


If you are looking to make them low carb or keto friendly, omit the beans and swap the rice for cauliflower rice! Easy peasy!
