Delicious Marinade

6 Sep

Had swordfish for the first time yesterday. I made up this yum marinade because I couldn’t remember the recipe I’d seen on tv. You can use this for any seafood or chicken even. Try it baked or on the grill!

What you need –
1 Cup of Chardonnay (or any white. Chardonnay was on the counter top I was working on)
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
salt and pepper
2 teaspoons of dried basil (if you have fresh that works too 4 – 5 leaves)
1/2 teaspoon of dried rosemary (if you have fresh, one sprig)
1/2 teaspoon of dried sage (2 – 3 fresh if you have it)
1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 cup of orange juice (I like the kind with no pulp)
Zest of one lemon
Juice of half a lemon

Whisk it all together. Pour part of the marinade in the dish or container, just enough to coat the bottom. Place protein on top of the marinade and cover with the rest of the marinade. Let sit for atleast 30 minutes. Cook through and enjoy!!

C’est si Yum!!
