Fish marinade thing
At home I eat a fair amount of meat which isn't particular good for you. I'm trying to wean myself off by eating more delicious fish. Here is a recipe I invented which for the barbecue but imagine would work just as well in the oven.
- Fish (2, filleted, I used mackerel)
- Ginger (1 inch, grated)[^1]
- Red chilli (1, diced)
- Garlic (2/3 cloves, minced)
- Olive oil (a glug)
- Lime (2, juiced)
- Fresh coriander (a bunch, chopped)
- Fresh parsley (a bunch, chopped)
- Salt + pepper
Step 1: Prepare the marinade
- Take a bowl and add the ginger, chilli, garlic, olive oil, lime juice and the chopped herbs.
- Add some salt and pepper and give it a good stir.
Step 2: Marinate the fish
- Take a baking tray (or whatever the fish are going to marinate in) and place the fillets skin down.
- Using your hands, take wads of the marinade and gently coat the fillets. Take care to evenly coat them with the deliciousness.
- Once done, cover the baking tray with cling film and stick them in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Step 3: Cook the fish!
- Again, I made these with the intent to stick them on the barbecue. I happened to have these Aluminium Cook Pans in the kitchen so took one of those, drizzled a bit of olive oil on it and added the fillets.[^2]
- I cooked the fillets until the flesh has just turned from raw to cooked and skin was crisping up. You don't need to turn them!
[^1]: I think I used more than an inch of ginger when I made this but I'm loving the ginger at the moment so probably went a bit overboard.
[^2]: Could you put them in one of those fish grill things? Probably, but I'm not that fancy.
