I love this time of year! Friends and families come into town. I can feel the holiday spirit. Whether I am hosting a dinner party or going to friends-giving, I know I'll be having Wente Vineyard wine. It's a perfect gift to bring to a dinner party. What is your favorite kind of wine? Riesling is a great starter wine if you're not a wine drinker.
I love cooking, and making up recipes in the kitchen. Lately, I've been on a healthy kick so I made a ranch salmon. I went to my local grocery store (HEB) and picked up Wente Vineyard wine, riverbank Riesling. It paired perfectly with my ranch salmon.
Only 3 ingredients, using one pan!
Servings: 2 Prep time: 00:10 Cook time: 00:30
1 lb salmon
1 bunch thin asparagus spears, trimmed
1 bagof small mixed potatoes - mixed white, yellow, purple, red and sweet potatoes (yukon golds, fingerlings, red potatoes etc.), cut
1 tbs brown sugar
3 tbs olive oil
1 packet of ranch dressing seasoning packet
1 Preheat oven to 450F
2 Put asparagus and mixed potatoes on pan, drizzle 2 tbs of olive oil
3 Sprinkle ranch seasoning packet (make sure you have enough for the salmon)
4 Bake for 10 mins
5In the meantime, prepare salmon
6 Coat top of salmon (skin side down) with brown sugar
7 Drizzle olive oil
8 Sprinkle ranch seasoning packet
9 Remove pan from oven and add salmon
10 Bake for 10 mins or until salmon is cooked through
11 After that switch to broiler HIGH for 3-4 minutes to brown up the top of the salmon.
12 Remove from oven and serve
Add a sauce! Mix mayonnaise and sriracha to add a kick!
The Wente Vineyard Riesling paired perfectly with the salmon. I like wine better than red. Wente Vineyard has a variety of wines.
Here are some of Wente Vineyards’ wines:
Morning Fog Chardonnay
Southern Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc
Riva Ranch Pinot Noir
Riva Ranch Chardonnay
Charles Wetmore Cabernet Sauvignon
