*Wet-packed scallops are preserved with chemicals, ooze liquid, and don't cook well. Dry-packed are available in most supermarkets. Before cooking scallops, peel off the tough little ligament on the side of the scallop that is often paler than the rest of the mollusk. It peels off easily (and in fact will often have disappeared before you buy it).

Recommended wine: Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Riesling

Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, and Riesling are great choices for Asian. The best wine for Asian food depends on the cuisine and dish - of course - but these acidic whites pair with a number of traditional meals, spicy or not. You could try Baron Herzog Chenin Blanc (OU Kosher). Reviewers quite like it with a 4.1 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 12 dollars per bottle.

A fresh and round mouth feel with intense fruity notes of nectarine, gooseberry and pine with a bright, clean finish. A versatile wine to enjoy with spicy ethnic foods from Chinese to Indian. Also great as an aperitif.
