Do you have big plans for the long holiday weekend? Mr. Fearless Dining and I have big plans that involve hiking and getting out into nature. Sometimes it is really important to reset and get away from screens. Yes, believe it or not, even food bloggers need a break from their computer :-).
This weekend we will also have friends over, and I can't wait to introduce them to my new favorite wine.
When I was asked to write about JaM Cellars Cabernet, and create a dish to pair with it, I was excited. JaM is a fruit-forward, berry-licious wine.
I actually struggled with what to make. There are so many yummy possibilities for recipes! How do you narrow it down?? You can go savory or sweet with this wine...though you wouldn't want a dessert that is too sweet, or it will compete with the wine.
My kids love teriyaki and I realize many people don't know how to make this simple marinade gluten free.
JaM Cellars is a no-nonsense, fun wine for any occasion. “We take our wines seriously; we just don’t take ourselves seriously!” - JaM Cellars. Not only do they make a delicious cabernet, but JaM Cellars also makes two other easy-to-love, everyday California wines; Butter Chardonnay and Toast Sparkling.
Second-generation Napa Valley vintners John and Michele are the “J” and the “M” in JaM Cellars. They made these wines in a style they love to enjoy with their friends any day of the week.
One of my kids' favorite dinners is teriyaki. I am not sure if it is the fruity tanginess or the sweetness of flavors that they love, but I have been making this gluten free teriyaki sauce for a long time.
I use it in all sorts of recipes including chicken and beef stir-fries. Let me show you how easy this recipe is to make! Are you ready to give this easy gluten free teriyaki recipe a try?
- Uncooked shrimp
- Pineapple juice
- Sesame oil
- Red pepper
Grab a bowl and add your marinade ingredients (Tamari, pineapple, garlic, honey, sake, sesame oil, and crushed red pepper). Whisk to blend. Make sure your raw shrimp is deveined and has no shell. Add to the marinade. Allow to marinate 10-15 minutes.
On a stove, add a little sesame oil to a large pan. Add sliced leek and red peppers. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and marinade to the pan and cook until the shrimp are no longer translucent about 8-10 minutes.
Serve over rice, rice noodles, or quinoa.
These shrimp marinate in the pineapple juice and the flavors blend perfectly with the fruity taste of JaM Cab. Even better? This dish is ready in under 30 minutes!!
