Shrimp & Lobster Burger Recipe Paired with Cool Climate Chardonnay – Natalie MacLean

I found this delicious recipe on the Natalie Maclean blog (Shrimp & Lobster Burger Recipe Paired with Cool Climate Chardonnay – Natalie MacLean) and had to share. It looks delicious! She recommends pairing it with a cool climate chardonnay. If it is a party, I have to recommend a new release from Chateau Julien, our 2011 Private Reserve Chardonnay Joroboam 3 liter bottle! Normally $330 but this month you can get it for $192. Click here for more info.
