An Italian White is Very Good with Mixed Fish Stew

We tried the mixed fish stew with croutons recipe from

We cut some salmon and smoked haddock into pieces, added some prawns and simmered in a stew made from garlic, tomato purée, onion, tomato, fennel seeds, saffron, paprika, fish stock, salt and pepper.

We served the stew with croutons, grated Gruyère cheese, a parsley garnish and a rouille made from mayonnaise, cayenne pepper, saffron and garlic purée.

Very tasty.  We’ll do this recipe again.

We opened a bottle of Orvieto Classico Secco, Barberani 2012, an Italian white from the Wine Society.

We found the wine slightly off-dry, fresh with good acidity and lovely creamy citrussy flavours.  A very good match with the fish stew. 2015-08-23 17.49.10
