Recipe Summary test
Banana leaves are available at Latin American and Asian markets.
For the spicy flavors of this food, Laurence Kretchmer, Bobby Flay's partner and the overseer of the wine lists at Mesa Grill and Bolo, likes Pinot Blanc, a dry, crisp wine with some nice suggestions of fruit, specifically orange and melon in the nose. It's a little rounder and richer than a Sauvignon Blanc. It also has more body and acidity, which makes it a great foil for the heat of the chiles. The wine exhibits excellent fruit and goes beautifully with the snapper and the Grilled Squid Salad with Mango.
