More About This Recipe

  • Every time I eat fish I want to sing the song, “Under the Sea.” No? OK. Let’s just talk about fish, shall we? So, here’s a truth: fish can be pretty bland on its own. Thankfully, it takes approximately the effort of lifting a pinky finger to flavor fish, especially when we’re talking marinades. Why? Because you mix a bunch of yumminess together, put the fish in it, sing a few more verses of “Under the Sea” and voila! Flavorful fish. One of my favorite healthy and easy-to-make marinades is this White-Wine Dijon Fish Marinade. There is a real flavor bomb going on in that bowl, and when you leave a few fillets of white fish or salmon in there overnight and then bake the fish, you will not BELIEVE the taste explosion that will occur in your mouth. So much goodness, and all you had to do was whisk up a marinade, go to sleep and put the fish in the oven.
