From the Kitchen - Chef and the Farmer

Frogmore Stew!

It’s summertime and that means it’s time for FROGMORE STEW!

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds large shell on shrimp, request 21/25s from your fishmonger
  • 1/4 cup Vivian Howard’s Fins & Shells bbq rub
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup lemon mayo
  • For the Fins & Shells BBQ rub: http://chefandthefarmer.bigcartel.com/product/vivian-howard-s-rub-it-in-fins-shells
  • For the Lemon Mayo: (makes 1 cup)
  • 3/4 cup of your favorite mayo
  • Zest of 2 lemons, removed with a microplane
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves, grated on a microplane
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish

Directions

  1. Get the rub: http://chefandthefarmer.bigcartel.com/product/vivian-howard-s-rub-it-in-fins-shells
  2. Make the Mayo: Whisk together all the ingredients and allow the mayo the opportunity to mingle at least 30 minutes before serving. It will keep refrigerated up to one week.
  3. Cook the Shrimp: Cut along the back side of each shrimp and remove the digestive track under cold running water. Take care to keep as much of the shell in tact as possible.
  4. Using a stove top steamer situation, steam your shrimp until just cooked through, about five minutes.
  5. While still very hot, toss the shrimp together with the bbq rub, the butter, and the lemon juice. Serve alongside the mayo with lots of napkins.

Yield: 4 servings

2013 Petit Manseng, Jones von Drehle, Yadkin Valley, North Carolina
Saturday Only $27.89 (regular $30.99)

“Fresh pears with hints of tropical fruit and citrus in the background. A full bodied white wine with an alcohol level to rival most reds. What caught your attention in the aroma does not disappoint in the mouth, it is full of fleshy fruit that continues through to the finish. It ends with crisp, lip smacking acidity tempting you back for another taste immediately.”

 

2012 Tempranillo, Jones von Drehle, Yadkin Valley, North Carolina
Saturday Only $20.69 (regular $22.99)

“Plum and black cherry aromas with hints of licorice and violets. A medium bodied dry red wine with a slight hint of French Oak.”

 

2012 Merlot, Jones von Drehle, Yadkin Valley, North Carolina
Saturday Only $25.19 (regular $27.99)

“Cherry and current aroma with light hints of wild blackberry. Bramble fruit on first sip, soft and filling in the mouth with a nice clean finish.”
