For serving the first dish, we recommend preparing this exquisite prawn plate that will delight all your guests.
This recipe has been prepared by the famous Portuguese Chef, Henrique Sá Pessola, 1 star Michelin winner with his restaurant Alma in Lisbon, Portugal.
For wine pairing, we recommend pairing this excellent dish with Mingorra Alvarinho 2020, a great white Alentejo wine, from Portugal. The good intensity and aromatic complexity of the white wine from Alentejo together with the fruity and floral aromas, will pair perfectly with this fish recipe.
