January 16–National Spicy Food Day!

Ginger Chili Scallops and Allegash

January 16th was National Spicy Food Day, so in honor of such holiday, I wanted to share a food and beer tasting I created for dinner that evening. I paired Ginger Chile Scallops, green peas, and butter-pepper crusted baked potato with Allegash White Ale.

Allegash White is a witbier brewed in Portland, Maine.  Similar in style to a Belgian wheat, this unfiltered beer blends flavors of wheat and spice to create a lovely accompaniment to the spicy ginger scallops.  The wheat is subtle enough to allow the spice of the meal to shine while still holding up in complexity and body to this sweet and spicy meal.

Enjoy!!
