Mexican Shrimp Escabeche & Spicy Thai Shrimp Salad with fresh Coconut.

Last night, I prepared two very different dishes both using the same protein, local shrimp. One dish was Mexican, the other Thai. I decided to compare a Riesling (off-dry 10% alc) from Australia and a Susan Balbo Crios Torrontes 14% alc(big).

The Riesling was best with both. Torrontes was fine with the Escabeche but not the Thai dish as the spice elevated the alcohol as expected. The escabeche was mild by comparison as it was Ancho based. Interesting experiment!
And very tasty 😋
