Quick Marinades for Fish Fillets and Steaks


These marinades are very simple to make. Although we call them marinades, they can be added to the fish as little as 10 minutes before serving or as long as 1 or 2 hours ahead. All for 4 portions of fish.

Orange-Basil Marinade
Chop together 1/4 cup (packed) basil leaves, 1 strip (about 2 x 1/2 inch) orange zest, and 1 clove garlic until fine. Combine with 1/4 cup fresh orange juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Spoon over fish and let stand until ready to cook.

Lemon and Black Pepper Marinade
Sprinkle 2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest on the fish. Add a generous grinding of black pepper and 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil. Spread evenly over the surface of the fish. Let stand until ready to cook.

Soy, Sesame, and Ginger Marinade
Combine 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce, 2 teaspoons oriental sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger. Stir to blend. Spoon onto fish steaks and spread evenly. Let stand until ready to cook.
