Pastrami Style Grilled Salmon

Smoky, peppery and rich grilled salmon is a brilliant idea, particularly when you want to pair it with a red wine. Pinot Noir and salmon is a classic pairing. Truth is, I’m very particular about this pairing since the wine often overwhelms the fish. In this case, you can break out a pretty powerful Pinot and still make for a compelling match, though a nice, subtle Syrah might actually be a better partner. I see a showdown in my fish future.

    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.
