A gift from the water gods

When prepared properly, scallops can be a heavenly, melt in your mouth seafood. And it makes for a deliciously light meal welcomed any time of year.

It is also an ideal fish to pair with a rich and buttery Chardonnay, as the generous amount of acidity cuts through the richness of the dish and refreshes your palate for the next bite.Try using the Jackson Triggs Gold winning wine at the Ontario Wine Awards & Selection Mondailes for the perfect compliment in a buttery Beurre Blanc sauce.
