Salmon is a red-hot favourite in our house and high up the list on my desert island foods. It can be served up a hundred different ways each as mouthwatering as the last. Lightly oiled, skin side down for 2 minutes, flipped on each other side for 30 seconds and in a 360º oven for 5 leaves it golden and crunchy on the outer and velvet smooth, pink and flaky on the inside.
Salmon is brimming with omega-3 (alpha linoleic fatty acids) a.k.a “the good fats” touted for their positive effect on our skin, a healthy heart and long-term brain health.
So too, is half a glass of your favourite vino a day, thank you Doc. Pair effortlessly with any floral or fruit driven white with a shimmer of acidity to cut through the oiliness of this delectable fish - Pinot Gris, Chenin Blanc, Semillion or Viognier. For sweet glazed or lightly smoked salmon, source a fragrant, light red wine with bright red fruit and fine grain tannin - Gamay, Burgundy or light expression of Nebbiolo.
