Bluewater Goes Down Under for Second Tuesday Tasting in October

October 10 celebration pairs Grilled Barramundi (Australian Seabass) with Salt & Pepper Calamari and wines from New Zealand.

Bluewater Boathouse is making its Second Tuesday Tasting in October a decidedly Down Under affair by pairing Australian seafood favorites with hand-selected wines from New Zealand.

The “Bluewater Down Under Tasting” on Tuesday, Oct. 10 combines Bluewater’s popular Blackened Barramundi with Salt & Pepper Calamari and Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from New Zealand’s Marlborough County.

An Australian Aboriginal term for “large-scaled river fish,” Barramundi is also known as “Australian Seabass” and popular throughout Southeast Asia and the South Pacific including Australia and New Zealand. Bluewater’s variety from its “Grilled Favorites” menu offers a white, flaky consistency and mild flavor and is served with Chipotle dirty rice and sweet corn and avocado relish.

The fish is sustainably harvested at a facility certified by the European Union, Friend of the Sea, World Wildlife Fund, Marine Stewardship Council and other organizations.

Bluewater’s Salt & Pepper Calamari, inspired by the famous Australian pub food, is served with sweet chili sauce and popular on the restaurant’s small-plates menu.

The cost of the special tasting event is $34.95 per person for Oct. 10 seatings beginning at 5:30pm.  In addition to the Oct. 10 event, customers can order the two featured items and wine off the menu throughout October.
