One of the best things I have made is this crazy-easy 15 Minute Szechwan Shrimp recipe! The flavor that comes together in such a short period of time is amazing! It’s like ninja-fast!
You don’t need to like Chinese food to enjoy this dish OR even know what the heck Szechwan shrimp IS…If you like shrimp and you enjoy a flavor explosion…well then this recipe is for you! I’ll wager that if you give my 15 Minute Szechwan Shrimp recipe a try…It will become one of your favorite recipes!
As a serious shrimp lover! I would pick shrimp over a donut, chips, chocolate or just about any other temptation you can throw at me! The best part about making a shrimp appetizer or shrimp for dinner, is how incredibly fast it comes together.
Sometimes I made this stand-alone with just a side salad, sometimes I serve it over rice…However, my favorite way is serving it with rice noodles. Making Asian Rice Noodles literally only takes minutes dunked in boiling water to make (pictured below). The delicate noodles mingled with the sauce and shrimp = y-u-m!! I make double the sauce for that.
Since this 15 Minute Szechwan Shrimp recipe is pleasantly spicy it pairs well with a crisp sweet wine. I paired it with Cherry Cobbler Wine from Oliver Winery and darn was it scrumptious! The sweet-crisp wine and the heat of the shrimp was a party in my mouth!
You seriously need to have this recipe in your life!
This is a sponsored post in partnership with The Motherhood; samples of wine were provided by Oliver Winery. I was excited to partner up since I do love wine and cocktails…, especially in the summer!
After the success of the Apple Pie Wine (which kept selling out), Oliver Winery has just launched their sweet and refreshing Cherry Cobbler Wine. It’s like summer in a bottle and is currently available now and this summer or until supplies last (which from what I am hearing may be as soon as July 4th!).
Try this refreshing Cherry Cobbler Wine served ice-cold is perfect by the pool, at picnics, BBQ’s or for a summer evening spent star-gazing with someone you love! As you sip, you get a whiff of tart candied cherries, then taste a light sweetness, followed by a hint of caramel and vanilla. Delicious on its own or paired with a spicy meal or appetizer or a dessert.
Paring this wine with this easy 15 Minute Szechwan Shrimp recipe made me a very happy gal! My husband also enjoyed it. The crisp, clean ice cold wine mingling with the heat of the shrimp was perfection! I hope you try this recipe!! Tag me on Instagram with a photo of your creation when you do!
Dessert makes every day better right? Why not serve it in a glass…no fork necessary!! Cheers to that!
