Pairing Summer's Salmon After writing this week's article that focused on local food festivals I realized, perhaps almost too late, that the Copper River Salmon season is rapidly coming to a close. While salmon might not be thought of as a particularly summery dish, the light meaty flavor of salmon along with its firm texture makes it perfect for grilling, and the fact that Pacific salmon is in season right about now in fact does make salmon a quintessential summer time dish.

How you prepare your salmon can influence how summery it feels though, and grilling seems to be to be the quintessential summer time cooking technique, though it can be done year round of course. Salmon is a wonderfully adaptable fish, both in the kitchen as well in a wine sense, working well when paired with everything from virtually any white wine to some lighter reds like Pinot Noir, Frappato, and even Syrah. It all depends on the preparation of course so lets take a look at five particularly enticing salmon recipes and work out some suitable wine pairings for each!
