Vietnamese-Style Jumbo Shrimp on Sugarcane
Recipe Summary test
The lemongrass marinade can be refrigerated overnight.
Sugarcane swizzle sticks are available in the fruit department of many large supermarkets. Alternatively, look for canned sugarcane in syrup at Asian markets; you'll have to drain the sugarcane and cut it into lengthwise sticks with a sharp knife.
These sweet-salty shrimp go perfectly with a white wine full of tropical fruit and a touch of spice—which is what winemakers create by blending Gewürztraminer and Riesling. Look for one from South Australia.
