‘Grilled’ Marinated Sailfish

Marinades are my favorite.  Mostly because I can just dump a bunch of stuff I have in my cabinets into a bag with some meat, place it in the fridge, forget about it, and it always tastes yummy. So, with our new fish obsession I was looking for some other things to try.  I came across this super simple marinade and thought I would give it a try – and it was fantastic!

What You Need:

Sailfish steaks
4 cloves of garlic

1/3 or so cups white wine
1/4 cup lemon juice (or lime)
2 Tbs soy sauce
2 Tbs olive oil
a dash of nutmeg 

With the citrus and the wine, this marinade didn’t need too long to sit. It was done after about 30 minutes or so (perfect amount of time to get a little more studying in). The inspiration recipe was for grilled fish, but we don’t have a grill in Grenada. So instead I just cooked the fish in a skillet on the stove. Not the same as grilling, but it actually came out really good. The marinade kept the fish really moist. I just seared the outside on high heat and then cooked the rest of it on low heat until it flaked easily.

Tyler loved this dish. It came out really well for being such a different take on fish. I hope to try this at some point when we are back in the states when I can actually grill the fish.
