Hard Cider Shrimp & Potato Tapas

Shrimp and potato is a classic tapas recipe. In this version, we change it up a bit and poach the shrimp in Woodchuck Amber Hard Cider with garlic and shallots. The resulting shrimp are crisp and refreshing. A mashed potato and polenta mixture is coated around the shrimp, and they are topped with parmesan cheese. Into the over, and viola, a tapas for Tuesday.
