Classic Spicy Gazpacho

Classic Spicy Gazpacho

This is a beautiful first course with the fresh flavors of cucumber, cilantro and tomato. Our Classic Spicy Tomato Sauce brings a depth of flavor to the gazpacho and a seared shrimp finishes the dish off. This recipe is perfect for company and the last sun-drenched evenings of September before the Fall sets in.

Ingredients:

  • 1 English cucumber, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup diced red onion
  • 1 cup Classic Red Tomato Sauce
  • ½ cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoons smoked paprika, divided
  • 1 teaspoon horseradish
  • Sea salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ pound shrimp (26-30 count), cleaned and shells removed
  • Diced cucumber and dill for garnish
  • Lime wedges

Directions:

  1. Combine cucumber, onion, Classic Red Tomato Sauce, cilantro, garlic, ½ teaspoon smoked paprika and horseradish in a blender and puree until smooth. Season to taste with salt. Set aside.
  2. Season shrimp with remaining paprika and a bit of sea salt.
  3. In a medium sized frying pan over medium-high heat, sear shrimp in butter until just cooked (1-2 minutes per side).
  4. To serve, divide gazpacho into serving dishes and top with seared shrimp, diced cucumber and dill for garnish. You can also add a lime wedge to each dish as a final touch.
