Jumbo shrimp carpaccio with citrus sauce
This recipe is from Chef Fabio Belcielo of the Podernovo restaurant at the Castello delle Regine resort estate. We pair it with the very new Alto Adige Sauvignon The Wine Collection 2015 Cantina San Michele Appiano/Kellerei St. Michael Eppan.
Ingredients for 4 people:
80g peeled jumbo shrimp, 1 pink grapefruit, 1 orange, salt, extra-virgin olive oil, black salt (kala namak) shavings, chives and mint.
Cut the shrimp into pieces, place them between two sheets of plastic wrap and flatten them delicately with a meat tenderizer.
Peel the skins off a slice of orange and one of pink grapefruit and keep them to the side. Squeeze the juice out of the remaining fruits.
Use a blender to whip up the juice with a trickle of EVOO and a little salt.
Spread the sauce out on a flat plate and place the shrimp carpaccio on top. Garnish with the peeled citrus slices and black salt and decorate with the chives and mint.
