Rock This Shrimp

Davanti Enoteca’s rock shrimp salad honors the pea from sprout to pod


Published:

Davanti Enoteca’s rock shrimp salad honors the pea from sprout to pod. At the eatery’s just-opened third location (there’s one in Chicago and San Diego’s Little Italy), executive chef Andre Fuentes hand-shucks these green English pearls, which mingle with pea shoots, teardrop tomatoes, and house-made grilled croutons, all surrounded by lightly seared rock shrimp and garnished with a bouquet of pea tendrils. These leaves have the texture of spinach with nutty undertones, and their presence on the menu signals the end of winter. A lovely precursor to a wood-fired pizza or Davanti’s made-from-scratch pasta, the salad pairs smartly with a white Vermentino, whose mineral nose and moderate acidity plays nicely off the dish. Salute! 12925 El Camino Real, Carmel Valley
