Do you love shrimp linguini? For me, it is on my top twenty dishes I absolutely love to eat! Well actually I love any kind of shrimp; broiled, fried, pan seared — all shrimp is all good to me! This delicious meal isn’t something I cook regularly but when I do, oh oh oh oh ~ life is grand! The wine reduction is just flavor ridiculous! Serve this dish with a glass of white wine and then pair it with fried cheesecake for dessert to create a dinner experience everyone will love!

    What immediately came to my mind looking at the pictures was a wine festival I visited last year during which a similar dish was served and it was really delicious. I love wine festivals and my favorite Vancouver International Wine Festival is among the top 10 events of this kind taking place in my native city. Last year the atmosphere was great and I loved the idea of brining together wine tasting and raising money for a good cause so I’m really looking forward to this year’s edition. Hopefully, I’ll discover some new great recipes just as this one. :)
