BBQ White Prawns
Old Bay & Tajin Seasoned, Wood-Fire Grilled
A Word From Chef Brian
Our BBQ White Prawns recipe epitomizes the joy of summer grilling. We use high-quality prawns and a specially blended mix of Old Bay and Tajin seasonings to achieve that perfect balance of flavors. Grilling over a natural wood fire adds a unique smoky complexity to the prawns, which makes this dish a crowd-pleaser. It's simple to prepare, yet it delivers a flavor profile that will leave you craving for more. Pair it with our Element 79 Estate “Abby” Rosé of Zinfandel to elevate your dining experience.
Wine Note from Estate Chef Brian Overhauser
This preparation has a lot of deep spicy notes but not too much heat. The complementing element of the wine should be fruit and I can think of no better wine than our Element 79 Estate “Abby” Rosé of Zinfandel. Its has both the fruit needed and just the right amount of backbone to cleans the spiciness from your mouth leaving a refreshing finish of young, light Zinfandel fruit.
