Dinner for 2 is served. This recipe comes courtesy of Chef Kevin King from Fluke Wine Bar in Newport. Fluke is a deliciously refreshing light white fish for the summer time. The restaurant serves this with a simple vegetable dish called Ratatouille and savory Cous Cous. 'Gansett Summer Ale is the perfect pairing for this Fluke dish. The citrus notes from the citra, galaxy and chinook hops will compliment the refreshing fish and vinaigrette nicely. Visit Fluke next time your in Newport or enjoy this at home.
