Spiced Shrimp Cocktail


This recipe is based on the classic Vietnamese dipping sauce called Nuoc Cham. Any remaining dressing makes a wonderful marinade for grilled chicken or fish. Sonoma-Cutrer’s Sonoma Coast Chardonnay pairs nicely with this dish.

    12 mint leaves

    12 cooked and peeled 16-20 size shrimp

    Green onion curls, finely sliced and placed in ice water (for the Vietnamese dressing)

    2 tsp cilantro leaves, coarsely chopped (for the Vietnamese dressing)


    1. Combine all ingredients and stir until sugar is dissolved. Let stand at least 20 minutes before serving for flavors to develop. Adjust salt/sweet/tart/hot flavors to your taste.
