Simply Healthy Family: Grilled Blackened Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Moscato Fruit Salsa #SundaySupper


Grilled Blackened Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Moscato Fruit Salsa #SundaySupper

Sweet and Spicy, Sweet and Sour, Sweet and Salty and just plain Sweet. There's something about a touch of sweetness that makes most everything better. Whether it be chocolate covered pretzels, a Sweet and Sour stir fried pork, strawberries dipped in chocolate or these Grilled Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Moscato Pineapple and Mango Salsa. 

At the end of the day, sometimes a girl just needs something sweet. 

Thank goodness Gallo Family Wine made an official Moscato Day on May 9th to celebrate such a perfect aperitif or dessert wine. Gallo has 3 Moscato varieties  White, Pink and Red to suite your particular taste or dish. If you have a favorite dish featuring moscato you can join in the fun and win great prizes! Check out the details here.

Moscato, not surprisingly, is thought to originate from the Piedmont region of north west Italy were many great wine varieties come from. Even though it would be nice, you don't have to be in Italy to enjoy great wine, you can find Gallo Family Vinyard's Moscato at most local supermarkets. Find it at a store near you here.

Jumbo, fresh shrimp are tossed in a spice blend of onions, peppers, garlic, paprika, citrus and herbs and grilled to perfection and then layered on large leaves of crisp lettuce with spoonfuls of of a mango, pineapple salsa that has been marinating in white balsamic vinegar and sweet Gallo White Moscato wine for 24 hours. Maybe I should call this a Sangria salsa?

Easy enough for a weekend BBQ with the family and definitely presentation worthy for a summer get together with family and friends. This is what we enjoyed while sitting around the pool here in Phoenix. The white Moscato wine paired perfectly with the blackened shrimp wraps. 

Fresh mango and pineapple are diced into cubes along with purple onion, cilantro and Thai chilies. Throw them into a large mason jar and pour in a splash of white balsamic vinegar and then fill it to the brim with Gallo's White Moscato wine. Place it in your cooler and let all of the flavors get to know each other for at least 4 hours and up to 24.
