Sesame–crusted salmon with roasted tomato and almond salad

Pair with Amontillado

Normally a fino would complement this dish, and it will, but as the salad and salmon are quite rich the amontillado worked very well. The extra richness of the sherry cut through the dressing. The toasted sesame seeds and the almonds provide good texture.

Pairing Amontillado with food

Amontillado should be served at a temperature of between 12 and 14º C.

It is an ideal wine to accompany soups and consommés, white meat, blue fish (tuna), wild mushrooms and semi-cured cheeses.

It combines perfectly with vegetables such as asparagus and artichokes.
