Every time I eat fish I want to sing the song, “Under the Sea.”
The seaweed is always greenah
In somebahdy else’s lake
You dream about going up theh
But that is a big mistake
Instead you should stay where you ah
And make this yummy marinade!
No? OK. Let’s just talk about fish, shall we?
So, here’s a truth: fish can be pretty bland on its own. Thankfully, it takes approximately the effort of lifting a pinky finger to flavor fish, especially when we’re talking marinades. Why? Because you mix a bunch of yumminess together, put the fish in it, sing a few more verses of “Under the Sea” and voila! Flavorful fish.
One of my favorite healthy and easy-to-make marinades is this White-Wine Dijon Fish Marinade. There is a real flavor bomb going on in that bowl, and when you leave a few fillets of white fish or salmon in there overnight and then bake the fish, you will not BELIEVE the taste explosion that will occur in your mouth. So much goodness, and all you had to do was whisk up a marinade, go to sleep and put the fish in the oven.
Here are a few of my other fave fish marinades found on the ocean floorah – I mean, on the Tablespoons:
This honey, lime and cilantro marinade recipe is the bee’s knees. It’s sweet and tart and really packs a punch of flavor for your proteins.
Grilled halibut with tomato-avocado salsa, anyone? Yes, please! I’ll take one thousand servings.
This classic lemon-herb marinade does wonders for any whitefish, from tilapia to halibut to trout. Oh, and it’s RIDICULOUSLY easy to throw together, too.
Who knew lime and ginger could come together and be friends with a popular fish like mahi-mahi? It’s like a Polynesian paradise in my pie hole.
What is your favorite way to flavor fish?
