These healthy recipes are all created to pair with wine (a 5-ounce glass has anywhere from 110 to 150 calories)—all for 600 calories or fewer.
Smoked salmon is a great ingredient to keep around for quick and easy meals, but it seems special enough to serve with wine (unlike, say, turkey from the deli). I like a dry Riesling with this maki roll–inspired rice bowl: It’s a zippy counterpoint to the rich salmon, almost like a squeeze of lemon or lime. If you have already-cooked brown rice, this recipe comes together in just a few minutes.
