Friday Fish Dish – Roasted Salmon with Lentils Braised in Red Wine

This week’s Friday Fish Dish for Lent is a Pacific Northwest paring of roasted salmon with a light bodied Oregon Pinot Noir. The roasted salmon is served on a bed of French baby lentils, braised in red wine with a simple green salad, dressed with a mustard vinaigrette. For a beautiful presentation, plate on a platter and serve family-style. For a wine pairing, we suggest an Oregon Pinot Noir, for the silky, subtle tannin structure and strawberry and raspberry fruit character. The earthy undertones of Pinot Noir bring out the savory and rich flavors of the salmon and braised lentils.
