This week, we’ve revealed this easiest way to score and season fish, the top 6 fish cooking tips from chefs and the 10 best quick sauces for fish. Now, it’s time for the finishing touch: the wine. Here, eight great fish and wine pairings.
1. Sardines with Albariño
Rich, quick-cooking and oily (in a good way) sardines need a zesty white wine like a Spanish Albariño to cut through the strong flavors. Try the 2012 Granbazán Etiqueta Verde or 2013 Lícia with this recipe for grilled sardines.
2. Hake with Rosé
Hake is a member of the same fish family as cod and haddock, and like them, it’s white, flaky, lean and mild. Pair a fruit-forward rosé like the 2012 Edetària Vinya d'Irto Rosat with this fast, summery recipe for olive oil-poached hake.
