Gewürztraminer Rheinhessen, medium-dry, 2011
This Gewürztraminer wine is a tasty counterpart to the spicy chilli dip. The acidity makes for a refreshing aftertaste.
Set up three bowls for the shrimp batter. Put flour in the first. In the second, blend the eggs, mustard, and curry powder. Mix panko and coconut shavings in the third.
Now, season shrimp with salt and pepper and dip each one in the three bowls. First the flour, then the egg mixture, finishing off with the panko-coconut mix.
Deep fry the breaded shrimp in a deep frying pan with hot vegetable oil for approx. 30 - 60 sec. on both sides until golden. Remove and place on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
For the dip, finely chop a small piece from the white end of a stick of lemongrass. Then mix sweet chili sauce with plain yogurt, finely chopped lemongrass and the zest from a quarter of the lime. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the crispy shrimp.
