Congratulations! You’ve ordered your Secret Island goodies, received them fast and fresh through the mail, and are now ready to create something incredible. So what’s the first step?
Well, we believe nothing pairs with Atlantic salmon quite like a glass (or bottle), of wine. Before you start cooking, uncork your senses and discover five of the best wine and salmon combinations.
- Pinot Noir
One of the oldest grapes used for wine, pinot noir is delicate in nature, with a red berry profile and light body, it is the perfect partner for your Atlantic salmon. Once you receive your Secret Island fillets, try grilling or searing them for a bold flavor that compliments the wine’s cherry fruit elements. Feeling a little adventurous? Throw in mushrooms, bacon, or soy sauce for an added savory taste that will not disappoint.
- Dry Rosé
In the last couple of years, rosé has exploded on the US market. A French favorite, this gentle blend has become an extremely popular companion for summer beach trips and backyard barbecues. Considering making a salmon dish at your next warm-weather event? Try baking or grilling your Secret Island salmon with cooked tomatoes and olives to bring out the rosé’s rich flavors.
A classic fish sidekick, oak-aged chardonnay is a full-bodied white with crisp, fruit notes that make it the perfect partner for any salmon cuisine. The wines’ smooth texture stands up nicely to the Atlantic salmon’s fattiness, creating a refreshing zing throughout the entire meal. Take it one step further and smoke the salmon with a cream or butter sauce—your taste buds will thank you.
- Sauvignon Blanc
With a refreshing crispness and low amount of sugar, sauvignon blanc is one of the most popular wines in the United States. This wine is the perfect complement for your next salmon dish, as the strong citrus and herbal notes highlight the fresh flavors found in all of our Secret Island foods. Interested in becoming your own at-home sushi chef? Partner this classic white with your favorite rolls to balance the acidity.
Whether it’s a pop of Prosecco or classic Cristal, Champagne is a delicious, bubbly treat that pairs well with smoked salmon. The sparkling wines’ dry, crisp finish provides a tantalizing match that compliments Secret Island’s flavor-packed seafoods. Wanting something a little more daring? Raw salmon and sashimi are great alternatives that work in harmony with Champagne’s fruit flavors to create a perfect balance.
Now, what are you waiting for? Treat yourself and your tastebuds to one of these delicious combinations, and explore more of our Secret Island seafoods!
