Grilled Chicken and Shrimp Kebabs with Lemon and Garlic

So now I’m cheating a bit, sneaking some shrimp on the barbie and all, but this recipe is just so simple, so easy, and so summery that I couldn’t resist. I’d serve this over some Jambalaya rice seasoned with andouille for a complete and easy meal, but these skewers could be served with just about anything and you'd still be eating like royalty. This is like beef for red wine; pick your favorite white wine and it’s sure to work well with this dish, so let me think for a moment and try and decide what today’s favorite white wine might be. And there it is, staring me in the face, this is the time to try something different and a white wine from Greece is just a perfect match. I’d love to be able to recommend specific varieties, but sadly Greek wines aren’t that available across the US, but a nice Greek blend can serve as an affordable introduction to the sunny, summery wines of Greece. Expect succulent citrus flavors and mouth watering and refreshing acidity!

Two to try:

Gaia Estate White Blend Nótios ($15)


Domaine Mercouri White Blend Foloi ($15)
