Grilled Scallops with Mexican Corn Salad

I’ve been making a dish very similar to this for years. The pairing of fresh, sweet corn and fresh, sweet scallops, bound together by wisps of smoke and chilies can be addictive. I do not use the mayonnaise nor do I use the cheese suggested in this recipe, but I do add in some celery. The kernels release plenty of their own creamy liquid when this is made with freshly shucked corn.

With the richness of the dish and the smoky edge imparted by grilling, it is a no-brainer match for a big Chardonnay.

    Wouldn't the Edmunds St. John Syrah (2008) be too tannic for the Salmon dish? By the way, this article comes at the right time for us since we do more fish at this time of the year.
