Amy’s Wine Pick : Amos Ridge Sauvignon Blanc La Mancha 2017

Laura’s Food Pick : Cajun Fish Tacos

 

 

This dreamy pale wine comes to us all the way from La Mancha, Spain. The first thing you are likely to notice is the scent of golden raspberry, which is accented in flavor with floral notes and a hint of white pepper. Best enjoyed chilled, check out our gift guide that has these awesome chilled glasses to keep your wine at the perfect temperature!

 

Ingredients for Cajun Fish Tacos

 

The clean and direct nature of this wine makes it a great pair for many preparations of white fish, and a great balance with the sweet and spicy tastes brought by these tacos! We kicked up the spice, so it was a great pair to cool things back down in between bites.

I was surprised at how quickly these tacos were assembled! The thing that took the longest was chopping the ingredients for the salsa, which you can totally eliminate if you purchase pre-chopped onions and mangoes for a ridiculously quick prep! If you decide to go at the mangoes on your own, I recommend checking out this tutorial on how to cut them. I definitely found that it was harder than I expected and I ended up wasting a good amount and my mango pieces were not pretty! It was still delicious so no complaints, but if I were serving to guests I would want more uniform (and not hacked) pieces.

I also made guacamole with this, because… well duh, because GUACAMOLE IS DELICIOUS! So I’ll be sharing my  recipe for super easy three ingredient guac as well! Technically it is two ingredients, but I add a super secret bonus ingredient that takes it to a WHOLE NOTHER LEVEL! But seriously, this guacamole is so easy, just add the mix to mashed avocados and BAM, done! I’ve eaten right after mixing because I am impatient, but the flavors develop so much if you can stand to wait an hour or two to eat it after preparing.

 

 

What is this SUPER SECRET BONUS INGREDIENT YOU ASK? It is my favorite hot sauce in the entire world, HazMat! If you have been following me on personal page for awhile, you’ve seen me use it on everything from eggs to sweet & spicy orange glaze ribs over the years!

When I was putting this recipe together, I knew this would be the ultimate kick to add to this recipe since it was already such a great play on the balance between sweet and spicy. With apricots, garlic and habaneros, this hot sauce will add heat AND flavor. I used it to take the mango salsa and the guacamole up a notch since we can’t get enough of this stuff. And boy was I right! To snag a bottle of your own, check out their site and use Promo Code “911” for one dollar off every bottle in your order!

We ended up making these again the very next day because we loved them so much, and they will definitely be in regular rotation on our menu! This pair will also be on our table for Cinco De Mayo, and will be a tasty departure from our usual Cinco go-tos of  steak tacos and Coronas!

 

 

Cheers!
