Have you seen the first episode of our new video series, Perfect Pairs? We sure hope so! If not, check it out here. The new video series aims to showcase local chefs and mixologists in the Coastal Bend and have them work together to collaborate on the perfect pairing of food and drink.
Our first episode features our very own Kayla Butts. Kayla is the co-curator of Farm to Table every month, as well as a farmer and dietitian. She is cooking up Gambas al Ajillo; which is a great way to source and implement local seafood into your dinner! Alongside Kayla we have the awesome George Sutherland of BUS, mixing up the perfect Negroni to stimulate your appetite. Below you’ll find the written-out recipes to both items made in the video. We hope you’ll recreate these meals at home with your own family and possibly learn something new in the process. Take a photo of your creations and tag us on Instagram (@thebendmag) so we can see how you did!
Gambas al Ajillo:
Preheat a large, cast iron pan over medium heat. Once hot, add olive oil and butter. Once butter is melted, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add in shrimp, salt, and pepper, cooking for an additional 2-3 minutes, until shrimp become mostly opaque. Remove from heat and stir in parsley and juice of the lemon. Serve hot with crusty bread.
