Serving Size:
Cook Time:
Imperial (US)
  • 1 lb small new potatoes, scrubbed clean and halved
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1/2 lb medium asparagus, trimmed and sliced on the diagonal, 1 inch pieces
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 strip of lemon zest
  • 1 small garlic clove, coarsely chopped (we run it through a garlic press)
  • 1 tsp salt (recipe calls for 1/2 tsp but we think a smidge more is better)
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 2 salmon fillets (8 - 10 oz) or steaks cut about 1 inch thick
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Tasting notes: A wonderfully light and flavorful dish. The richness of salmon plays with the delicate balance of the Mendocino Ridge Pinot. The potatoes and asparagus offer tasty supporting flavors.

Serena's tips: We really like using fingerling potatoes and you could do a chopped sweet potato as well.
