Pour a glass, or two
As a general rule, white wine pairs well with most fish, but certain white wines go better with certain types of fish.
If you’re enjoying a lean and flaky fish like Morey’s Seasoned Grill Tilapia, look for a zesty and refreshing white to balance the more delicate fish flavor. The website Wine Folly recommends a Champagne or White Bordeaux.
However, if you choose a more meaty fish like Garlic Cracked Pepper Wild Pacific Salmon or Pineapple Mango Mahi Mahi, choose a wine pairing that goes with the steak-like texture. Rich white wines with lots of flavor and even a few red and rosé wines can do the trick. Try an Oaked Chardonnay, Dry Rosé or White Pinot Noir – your guests will welcome such a refreshing meal idea.
Thinking about a small tasting before dinner? Richly smoked fishes like Morey’s Wild Smoked Salmon Chunks are a little drier and need wine pairings that quench them. A Rosé Sparkling, Dry Riesling or White Pinot Noir will start your event on a high note.
