Tip: Marinating Fish

June 12, 2010

I used to think that you had to marinade fish overnight in the fridge, like other meats. But no–that’s not true. Fish is a delicate meat and should never marinade more than 30 minutes. If you let it go longer the fish gets mushy and actually starts to “cook” in the marinade. Don’t worry, 30 minutes is plenty of time to capture the marinade flavor in the fish! So save yourself the time and effort and have dinner ready that much sooner.

    Okay, so…. I marinade my salmon for FIVE hours. Maybe it’s not a REAL marinade though.

    I get a big piece of fresh salmon with the skin on, like 500g or so. I put it in an oven safe dish, skin side down and I pour EVOO on it.. I add salt and pepper and lots of fresh dill bunches. I cover it and let it sit for five hours at room temp! (My Swedish friend assured me I wouldn’t get sick and I trusted her. My mom would die to know I left fish out on the counter!!) :) THEN I flip it upside down in the dish and cook it…skin side up. 175 C for 22 minutes. THEN I pull the skin off so easily with a fork, flip it back over, dill side up, so it’s prettier and serve it with a plain yogurt sauce my husband makes. This is my new favorite thing to cook for guests because it’s so easy and fool proof.
