Argentine Marinade for Seafood

Prepare the Argentine marinade allow to cool. Peel your shrimp and clean them, leaving the last segment of shell on the tail.

Marinate the shrimp for at least one hour, two is better. Prepare your grill for high direct heat.

Grill your shrimp on direct high heat as the shrimp begin to curl turn them when curled around 2/3rds they are done. Pull them off.

Shown in the photos I made grilled red onions and artichokes which are really nice, red and green peppers would work as well. For a starch either a rice pilaf or grilled potatoes. This is a great part of an Argentine surf and turf with some grilled steaks with Chimichurri!

For wine with this dish, I like a nice Argentine Torrontes or try a crisp Sauvignon Blanc.
