Fishcakes are among the ultimate comfort foods. In general they pair well with completely dry white wines, however it depends a little on what fish you make use of and also whether you’re serving a buttery sauce alongside.
- Salmon fishcakes
Salmon fishcakes are quite rich and also often served with a citrusy butter sauce. I often favor the exact same types of a bottle of wine as I’d pick for a fish pie – unoaked or gently oaked Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Pinot Blanc or a Sauvignon/Semillon mixture such as you locate in Bordeaux or the Margaret Stream area of Australia.
White fish cakes with parsley
Not being quite as abundant these are great with a lighter, crisper white such as Albarino, Muscadet, Picpoul de Pinet or Pinot Grigio. A minerally Sauvignon Blanc like a Sancerre is a good pairing too.
- Thai fish cakes
Right here the seasoning is all-important together with the wonderful chili sauce with which they’re often offered. I would certainly tend to go with a completely dry Riesling – specifically Clare or Eden Valley Riesling though you could possibly also drink a New Zealand – or various other zesty Sauvignon Blanc. Witbier Blanche (wheat draft beer) is additionally a truly excellent match.
