Fish Recipes

 Growing up along the east coast, fish was a must have on the menu. Over the years I have experimented with several marinades. The good thing with fish is you do not have to marinade it for a long time. Here are a few of my favorites that you can easily make in minutes. The marinade measurements are for between 1-2 pounds of fish. After marinating the fish, you can put them on the grill, broil or bake the fish. Leftover marinade could be used as a sauce for the fish if you heat the marinade for a while and add about a table spoon of butter.  These delicious marinades are great on shellfish as well, so try some on shrimp and lobster.

Caribbean Marinade

2 Lemons

1 sprig of thyme

2 tablespoons olive oil

Several pinches of salt and black pepper to taste

1meduim chopped tomato

1medium yellow onion, finely diced.

Squeeze the lemons into the bowl. Make sure to remove the seeds. Chop the thyme, onions and tomatoes and add to the lemon mixture. Then add the olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. Pour directly over fish and shake up mixture then marinade for four hours. This marinade is great for any type of whitefish such as catfish, flounder, grouper, snapper or tilapia.

Cajun marinade

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons paprika

2 tablespoons season all

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon thyme

2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

Combine all the dry ingredients together. Then add the olive oil over the fish. Rub the dry ingredients liberally over the fish. Putting the olive oil on the fish first would help the seasonings to be well coated on the fish. This marinade works great for all types of fish.

Smokey bacon marinade

3 slices of bacon

1meduim onion

2 teaspoons salt

3 teaspoons black pepper

2 tablespoons tomato sauce

First fry the bacon and onions together until golden brown. Then sprinkle the salt and pepper over the fish. Next, add the bacon and onion mixture along with the tomato sauce. Blend this well and then pour over fish. I particularly like this marinade for flounder and tilapia.

Dill lemon pepper marinade

2 sprigs of fresh dill

2 tablespoons lemon Juice

2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons olive oil.

Finely chop the two sprigs of dill. Mix together in the bowl the remaining ingredients. Taste to check for desired salt and pepper. Pour the mixture liberally over the fish. This marinade is great for all types of fish, especially salmon.
