It’s time to hit the grill! There’s nothing like the smell of food cooking away on the BBQ outside during a lazy summer’s day. And it’s certainly no different when it comes to fish. Dress up your dish and make it spark with flavour with one of these fish marinades, brought to you by the leading provider of fresh fish in Malta – Azzopardi Fisheries.
Asian Marinade for Swordfish
Also delicious with a thick salmon steak, this marinade is a must-try. You’ll need ¼ cup of lemon juice, ¼ cup of sake, ¼ chopped cilantro, 2 tsp soy sauce, 4 cloves of garlic, 2 tbsp vegetable oil and 1 tsp lemon zest. Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl, and leave the fish to marinate for 1 hour, ideally at room temperature. Afterwards, grill for about 3-5 minutes, or until you are satisfied with the taste and texture.
Dijon Honey Mustard for Tuna Steaks
This is a great recipe to use if you are serving tuna with salad – it adds an irresistible flavour to both the fish and the vegetables. Grab 2tbsp dijon honey mustard, 2tsp soy sauce, 1tbsp extra virgin olive oil and 2 tbsp white vinegar. Mix all these ingredients in a bowl, and pour them over the tuna steaks in a way that ensures all sides are coated. Leave the tuna in the fridge for a few hours before cooking, covering the bowl or container. Grill the tuna for approximately 5-7 minutes.
Brown Sugar and Soy Sauce for Salmon
Incredibly tasty and easy to prepare, this marinade is sure to impress guests, family and friends alike! All you need is ⅓ cup soy sauce, ⅓ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup vegetable oil and ⅓ cup water. Combine all the ingredients, and continue mixing until all the sugar has dissolved. Season your salmon fillets with garlic powder, lemon pepper and salt to taste.
Pour the marinade over the fish, and place it in a large, resealable bag, leaving it there for roughly 2 hours. Finally, grill the salmon for 6-8 minutes on each side, or wait until the fish flakes when gently prodded with a fork.
