recipe's elegance and simplicity bring out the pure flavors of each ingredient. Perfect for hot
summer nights, it has a lightness and lemony tang that refreshes and doesn't weigh down the
palate. So easy and quick to make, this dish is a weekday staple in our
house, and also a go-to recipe for backyard BBQs - you can spend time with
your guests and not babysitting the grill.
With its meaty flesh and rich oils, salmon pairs well with both
full-bodied whites and lighter reds. For this dish, we have selected two Syrahs that
are also quite versatile, and go great with pretty much anything off the grill. While
some Syrahs lean towards fuller, more tannic styles that might overwhelm salmon, these
offerings have a leaner body and bright character.
