Shrimp with Vermouth and Sriracha

After reading the title, you must think I have gone crazy with this flavor fusionl.  You cannot believe this wonderful combination, vermouth is a fortified wine flavored with various botanicals typically used in many cocktails and sriracha is a spicy sauce made with red chilies and garlic typically used in Vietnamese and Thai recipes.  Combine these with lemon, olive oil and almonds and you have a shrimp dish that is so good you will want every last drop of the sauce.  I served this with rice but this would be equally good with pasta or just with crusty bread to dip in this wonderful sauce.  I always season lightly with hot sauce for a mild taste but add more sriracha if you like a spicier dish. You can even serve the sriracha along side for those that like to add a lot of “heat”.
