The Best Wine and Seafood Pairings!
When it comes to pairings, wine and seafood are among the most cohesive food and beverage choices. With so many different types of wines and seafood to try, it can get overwhelming when picking a proper pairing. For a list of the best seafood and wine pairings, just continue reading this blog post.
If a meaty, hearty fish is on the menu, pair this fish with a Pinot Noir. This type of red wine mimics the umami effect of tuna, while also being acidic enough to cut through the fat of tuna. If you’re more of a white wine fan, opt for a dry Riesling when pairing tuna and wine.
If you’re going for something flakier, such as fluke or halibut fish, you can get more creative with your wine choice. Typically, flaky white fish tastes like what it is served with. This means you can pair the wine to the side dishes of your meal, or simply pick your favorite wine for a familiar and delicious flavor.
Fish like trout or striper are considered oily. If you’re eating oily fish, consider champagne. Champagne is bubbly, which compliments the oily consistency of fish. Fruity wines also complement this type of fish.
These options are just some of the fish and wine pairings you can test out. If you’re in the mood for fish and wine, check out Off the Hook!
