Maple Glazed Shrimp and Butternut Squash With Gorgonzola Fondue

This savory and sweet seafood appetizer comes from Chef Justin Lyonnaise of the Commercial Street Fishery in Manchester. Skewers can be prepared ahead and roasted just before serving. For the skewer: 12 wooden skewers soaked in apple cider 12 large shrimp, peeled and deveined 24 pieces butternut squash largely diced — blanched (cooked until tender, not soft) and cooled For the glaze: 1/2 cup pure maple syrup 2 tablespoons minced rosemary 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 1/8 cup cider vinegar Mix all glaze ingredients with a wire whisk until well combined. In separate bowls toss the shrimp and squash with the maple glaze and let sit for 1 hour. Alternate shrimp-squash on individual skewers and roast in a pre-heated 400 degree oven for 7-10 minutes until lightly browned and caramelized. Arrange skewers around fondue in a small fondue pot or small slow cooker. For the fondue: 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled 1 teaspoon nutmeg salt and pepper Simmer cream over medium heat until reduced by half. Slowly whip in Gorgonzola until melted, season with nutmeg, salt and pepper to taste. Edit Module
