My go to recipe for a really good marinade for halibut, cod, or salmon. The marinade makes enough for 8 – 10 pieces of fish so I reduce the recipe as needed. This fish marinated this way was a big favorite at the bank’s corporate dining room, where I worked and I often had requests from some CEO or other for the recipe! You can cook the fish in the oven or on the barbecue, both excellent!
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1 cup EVOO
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup fresh lemon juice, regular or Meyer lemon
3 Tbsp. minced shallot or green onion
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill, or more according to your taste.
In a glass bowl whisk together everything but the EVO. Slowly whisk in the EVO & marinate the fish for no more that 3 hrs. in the fridge. You can either cook on a rack in a hot 450 F oven or, I think better yet, on the barbecue using a well oiled fish rack.
A Tip: Fish normally takes approximately 10 minutes an inch to cook, it may take longer but 10 minutes is a good place to check for the first time. Your looking for the fish to flake with a fork but not be overcooked.
