Lime marinade for fishPosted: September 17, 2008
We eat some type of fish/seafood a few times a week and keeping it creative can be a bit challenging. So I have done a lot of research and trial and error to find good dressings, flavors and marinades to keep our fish eating fun and exciting!! I found that combining citrus flavors with a variety of spices and sauces is key. So with wanting yet another way to cook fish, I needed a new marinade. I found lime juice is one of our favorites for salmon! This recipe was easy to throw together and gave the fish a light taste without losing the fish flavor!
3 tbsp. lime juice
zest of one lime
3 tbsp. vegetable oil
1/4 tsp. oregano
1 garlic clove minced
dash of salt and pepper for taste
2-4 salmon steaks-Any thicker, meatier type fish would work. Even a light white fish, but dont marinate as long.
Combine all marinade ingredients. Stir well. Add in fish steaks and marinate for 30 mins to 1 hour. Remove from marinade and discard marinade. Grill, broil, or saute fish until flaky. I sauteed it in a bit of evoo in a pan about 4-5 mins per side. Garnish with limes and a bit of lime juice squeezed on top and then put atop buttered pasta noodles or light rice and add a side salad for a nice light meal!
**I served it with an artisan pasta given to us by our great friends, Don and Angela. Their thank you box had great pasta, pesto sauce, and a walnut shallot dressing. The products were great. THANKS
