Spice Road Table – Spicy Garlic Shrimp “more spicy please”

This experience took place on March 16, 2014

We’re still sitting outside at Spice Road Table with Nabil taking care of us. The mussels tagine “more spicy please” that Nabil helped us with on a previous visit were so good, we wanted to find out how the shrimp would be if they were spiced up!

We ordered two wines to go with the Spicy Garlic Shrimp:

  • Marques de Caceres Rose – of course it was served too cold (nearly all chilled wines are too cold when they arrive at your table, regardless of where you’re eating… it isn’t a Disney World thing), I thought the nose was very sour and Nick thought it was green and mineral, as it warmed he said that the nose was grassy like a Chardonnay; as it warmed, I came to like the flavors more, it has more “white” characteristics than “red”
  • Marques de Caceres Roja – I prefer the Guerrouane Rouge without food, the nose and taste of this was just okay without food; Nick thought this wine was more opaque and had more tannins; in the end, Nick preferred the Guerrouane Rouge too

Both of these went well with the spicy shrimp. Nick preferred the Roja and I preferred the Rose (especially with the garlic in the shrimp dish).

You can see that there is a lot of garlic and chile on these shrimp

The shrimp were not overcooked (yay!), again, they had a nice snap and were tender – there were some distinct lemony flavors in this dish

Spice Road Table does an excellent job with their shrimp – too often, shrimp are overcooked and the result is dry, chewy erasers (yuck). The outdoor seating has it’s pluses, but in general, it isn’t for us (too warm too much of the year and the bugs were very annoying).
