What’s for Dinner Tonight: Spiced Dijon Salmon

Without fail, every time someone stops in looking for a wine to pair with dinner for their upcoming event or party, Grandpa sends them out the door with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc & a copy of his “famous Salmon recipe.” Regardless of your preparation however, it’s truly a classic combination that works almost every time.

Pairing our 2012 Reserve Sauvignon Blanc with #HelloFresh’s Spiced Dijon Salmon this week was no exception to the rule!

Though it might not be Grandpa’s take on the dish, we couldn’t get enough of these Turkish spiced filets (including cumin, garlic, and chili), topped with a creamy mustard sauce & plated on a bed of couscous- a whole grain traditionally served with fish in the Mediterranean due to its similarly tender nature.


In terms of wine, our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc Reserve is created in the Sancerre style, leaning towards the earthy tendencies of the grape. Acid-driven in nature, it really stands up nicely with the little kick of tang in the Dijon cream sauce, while the overall savoriness compliments the accompanying couscous.
