      About the Recipe

      What is the best season to make this recipe?

      The best season for enjoying my Apricot Shrimp Carpaccio recipe is summer.

      Summer blesses us with delicious apricots that burst with sweetness and a small hint of tartness. That combo ideally complements the lightness of the shrimp.

      This recipe is also great to step up from the kitchen heat and enjoy something light and bright, with your favorite drink, of course. So good! 🙂

      What are the health benefits of this dish?

      Apricot Shrimp Carpaccio includes many useful things when it comes to nutrition:

      • Shrimp offers lean protein which is beneficial for the muscles.
      • Apricots are rich in antioxidants, which help in improving your skin.Avocados are full of dietary fiber, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, antioxidants, and Potassium. They even have more than bananas.
      • Arugula contains various antioxidants, including vitamin C and beta-carotene.

      All of these make this appetizer not only light and delicious, but also nourishing.

      Where can I buy the required ingredients?

      You can buy all of the ingredients at your local farmer’s market or store. Go for wild-caught shrimp for the best flavor and sustainability.

      Can I substitute any of the ingredients in this apricot shrimp carpaccio?

      Yes, you can substitute apricots for peaches or nectarines. If you want to make this carpaccio recipe vegetarian, you can use thinly sliced zucchini as the base.

      Can you make this appetizer to be part of a menu?

      Absolutely, yes! 🙌 Pair it with crispy crackers, or a fresh piece of bread for a light appetizer.

      For the main course, you can choose Portuguese-Style Mussels or Octopus In Port Wine.

      Finish with a luscious Strawberry Panna Cotta or Kiwifruit Cheesecake.

      Which drinks do pair well with this apricot shrimp carpaccio?

      I love to choose beverages that harmonize with the dish’s flavors. For this recipe, I chose Cálem Port Wine RoséThe balance from the sweet wine perfectly matched the carpaccio. 🙂

      Another alternative is crisp and citrusy white wines like Sauvignon Blanc – they will certainly complement the elegance of this carpaccio.

      For a non-alcoholic option, lemonade with mint will add a touch of freshness.

      How long can I store the leftovers?

      While Apricot Shrimp Carpaccio is best enjoyed fresh, leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours.

      Recipe Tips & Tricks:

      • Chilling. Your shrimp and apricots should be well-chilled before assembly. This preserves their flavors and textures.
      • Plating perfection. Artfully arrange the shrimp and apricot slices on a plate. Garnish with micro arugula and a drizzle of high-quality olive oil and rosé wine vinegar for an appetizing touch.

      I hope you will enjoy this summer Apricot Shrimp Carpaccio!
