Clams the Sailor's Way
Pairing: 2010 Salneval Albariño
It's not uncommon in Galicia to have a meal that consists of lots of different shellfish, bread and nothing else. Encarna Méndez of Do Ferreiro winery prepares clams the fisherman's way: steamed in Albariño with onion and garlic.
Pairing: 2009 Dry Creek Vineyard Dry Chenin Blanc ($12)
Meaty fish, such as salmon and the swordfish steaks here, go well with citrusy, full-bodied whites like Chenin Blanc. Chenin Blanc often has a bright herbal note, which is a great match for this recipe's herby butter.
