24 Cooked, medium sized prawns, shell removed
2 tbsps Orange Juice
1 cup Washed, crisped, mint leaves
1 Orange, zest the skin then peel and skin the orange before dicing into even chunks
1 Small, sweet, green chilli, finely chopped
1 tsp Green Tabasco
1 1/2 tsps Sugar
2 tbsps JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil
8 Medium sized Cos lettuce leaves, crisped and chopped
1 1/4 cups Cashews, roasted, salted and chopped
Cook the prawns then tumble them together with the orange juice and mint leaves. Leave to marinade for 20 minutes.
For the salsa: mix the zest, diced orange segments, chilli, tabasco, sugar and JOSEPH Extra Virgin Olive Oil together and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Spread the chopped Cos lettuce on a serving plate, spoon on the salsa and top with the prawn, mint and orange juice mixture. Sprinkle the cashew nuts evenly over the dish and serve immediately with an accompanying glass of JOSEPH d'Elena Pinot Grigio.
2014 starts with a bang for our JOSEPH Sparkling Red with this lovely write up from Andrew Graham of Australian Wine Review:
'Intriguing as ever.
This 2013 disgorgement too is a high achiever, the final wine as complex and complete as you could ask for, with a little dose of nearly everything.
It smells principally of rich and decadent McLaren Vale Shiraz, all ripe and expansive choc plum richness. Yet over the top there is morethan a hint of the dusty, baked earth decay of 40 year old old Aussie red, suitably topped off with some of cassis and formic of Moda for balance, ultimately producing a wine that smells young and old all at once.'
