Nothing says “South African Heritage” quite like the smell of fresh, locally caught fish on the coals.
Chef Allistaire uses ethically-sourced Yellow Tail from one of our local like-minded suppliers accompanied by freshly steamed mussels on the fire to create the perfect braai day seafood salad. The mussels are warmed up in a creamy lemon sauce, then topped with fresh garden herbs and vegetable elements to counter the creaminess of the sauce, providing a delightfully balanced dish full of South African flavour.
This light and tasty salad pairs wonderfully with our 1685 Chardonnay from Boschendal Wines . This bold statement wine, which is big on aromas and flavours, has a lemon, cinnamon and nutmeg nose. Expect zesty citrus and ripe tropical fruit flavours. Well-balanced with a soft, buttery character from barrel fermentation and maturation, which adds to the complexity and roundness of the wine.
