These spicy shrimp and roasted pepper cheese crostini make a tasty quick and easy appetizer for any occasion.
It’s the holiday season and this is the time of year for holiday entertaining with loved ones. One of my favorite traditions is sitting with friends and enjoying a good bottle of wine. And of course, there are always delicious appetizers picked to pair with the wine.
An appetizer many gluten-free people don’t regularly enjoy is crostini. Crostini can be topped in so many ways…like with this spicy shrimp and roasted red pepper cream cheese.
This easy spicy shrimp crostini recipe is popular at parties.
Sunday Supper is teaming up with our favorite Gallo Family Vineyards to bring you special recipe pairings that you can enjoy not only during the holiday season, but all year long. Another appetizer that would work well with this wine is these Ground Pork and Leek Mini Meatballs.
Friends drop by our house, we drop by friends and family’s houses…it always brightens our day to spend quality time with the people we love.
I chose to pair this appetizer recipe with Gallo Family Vineyards Red Moscato. It is served chilled and is refreshing to sip. The Red Moscato is a sweet wine, but not overpoweringly, and it pairs really well with spicy dishes and cheese. When deciding upon a recipe to create, I knew I wanted a fun appetizer that would highlight the depth of this wine.
