We put out a call to our spicy fans to find us a mouth-watering recipe to pair with our unique wine. Our friend Constance Lewis came through with this delightful salmon dish. It’s sweet, spicy, and would make a perfect summer dinner, especially when paired with our Vino de Loco.


Salsa:

1 mango, diced
2 tbsp green bell pepper, minced
2 tbsp white onion, minced
1 roma tomato, diced
1 tbsp cilantro, minced
1 tbsp key lime juice

Pinch of salt

Rice:

1 cup long grain white rice

1/2 tbsp. olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
Dash of salt & pepper
