4 Chef’s Recipes for Grilled Fish Marinade
Before your fish hits the grill, bathe it in flavour! We asked four of Canada’s most in-demand chefs to share their most succulent recipes for grilled fish marinade.
4 Great Grilled Fish Marinade Recipes
Quick and easy to prepare, marinades consist of acid (citrus, vinegar or wine), oil and spices. For tasty results, marinate fish in a sealed container or in a plastic zipper bag before grilling. Thick steaks need up to three hours, but often less; fillets and shellfish require 30 minutes-any longer and they’ll cook in the acid.
Japanese Seven-Spice Marinade Recipe
The shichimi togarashi (Japanese seven-spice) marinade recipe by Kyle Groves, of Calgary’s Catch & The Oyster Bar, goes well with albacore tuna and mackerel-citrus tempers the oily taste of the fish and imparts a more delicate flavour.
Moroccan Marinade Recipe
Morgan Wilson of Trios Bistro in Toronto likes to pair a Moroccan marinade recipe with branzini (or catfish or mahi mahi); the firm-textured fish is the perfect match for the marinade’s deep, exotic flavours.
