This is a wonderful and simple marinade for fish that is awesome on the BBQ. It also works well for shrimp, so you can try both in one meal and see which you prefer. I prefer it on fish, but both are tasty. We normally serve this over rice, but it also goes well over a Parmesan and butter, or olive oil pasta.
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 3 large cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lemon, juiced
- 1 orange, juiced
- 1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, or 1 1/2 Tbsp fresh basil, minced
- 2 tablespoons white wine (optional)
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
- 4-5 fillets of fish (Tilapia, Red Snapper, Catfish, Salmon, Rockfish, Monkfish, or whatever you like!)
- In a 9x9 baking dish, combine the olive oil, mustard, garlic, lemon juice, orange juice, basil and white wine and mix. Add the fish fillets, and use a spoon to coat the fillets on top with the marinade. Sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste. Cover, and let marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Heat an outdoor grill to high heat.
- Oil the grill or a grill basket and grill for approximately 3 minutes, turn, then grill for an additional 3 minutes on the other side. Remove when fish is firm but still flaky.
