À la québécoise

Say goodbye to traditional spicy ground beef and let yourself be inspired by tacos served at some of Montreal’s hottest, trendiest restaurants. Fish and coleslaw, chicken and feta, pork and pineapple… and the list goes on!

Some more traditional Mexican ingredients are just too good to pass up, including cilantro, avocado, lemon and lime. For our recipe, we added a little touch of la belle province: lobster! We’ve paired it with a coconut-and-corn salsa for a dash of olé!

Lobster and crab

In May, lobster-and-crab season starts and it only lasts an all-too-short month and a half. The lobster comes primarily from Gaspésie and other Atlantic regions, and Quebec crab is generally snow crab.

What to drink with these tacos?

Fans of the lobster and rosé pairing will be delighted by wines under the Fruity and light taste tag. These tonic, delicate and fruity wines will beautifully highlight the coconut sauce without eclipsing the finesse of seafood. If you prefer a white wine pairing, opt for one from the Fruity and vibrant tag where the minerality and citrus flavours will play well with the salty nature of the lobster.
