Fish Marinade Recipes:

Here is Global Seafoods we offer several categories of seafood. A good fish marinade can elevate your meal and create a flavor experience that dances on your tongue. Seafood is one of the healthiest sources of protein, and we want to help you make your seafood taste amazing. The best fish marinade will depend on what type of fish you are cooking and what flavor profile you prefer. We've created a collection of white fish marinadessalmon marinades, tropic fish marinades, and shrimp marinades for you to experiment with as you incorporate seafood into your weekly meal plans. 

Marinade for White Fish

We offer five different types of white fish, Pacific cod, halibut, rockfish, flounder, and lingcod. Whitefish marinade recipes help balance the subtle sweetness of and flakey texture of white fish. When you marinate fish, it helps to keep your whitefish moist, especially when you use a fish marinade for baking or a fish marinade for frying

Pacific Cod Fish Marinade:

When marinating a white fish such as pacific cod, we recommend you follow these two simple tips: 

 1. Use an oil-based marinade. An oil-based marinade for fish filets will help maintain moisture in your fish. Whitefish can dry out quickly, especially when baking or grilling. 

 2. Quick Fish Marinade. Thirty minutes in an oil-based fish marinade will help prevent the outside of your fish from drying out too quickly without allowing the acidic ingredients in your fish marinade recipes to start cooking the fish. Unless you're making a ceviche such as Peruvian Raw Fish Marinade, you don't want to leave your fish in the marinade for too long.

Cilantro Lime Fish Marinade:

A lime marinade for fish pairs perfectly with bright, fresh ingredients such as fish tacos with fresh salsa or a fresh heirloom tomato salad. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) 
  • Juice from two limes
  • Six cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 Bunch of fresh cilantro (chopped)
  • 2 Teaspoons of chili lime seasoning

Directions:

  • Combine ingredients in a bowl and stir until well combined, or pulse all of the ingredients in a food processor until well combined. 
  • Pour over your cod fillets and marinate fish for 30 minutes to an hour. 

This easy marinade for fish is versatile enough that you can use for most varieties of white fish. For thinner fillets, you may want to marinate for only 30 minutes. If you have thicker fillets, they can withstand this cilantro fish marinade for up to an hour. A cilantro-lime marinade would be excellent as a grilled cod marinade

Lemon Pepper Fish Marinade:

Citrus and white fish pair nicely together. Whether you plan on grilling your marinated cod filets or baking your fish, lemon marinated cod is always a people pleaser. Try this lemon pepper fish marinated sauce with some lemon pepper broccoli or blistered green beans. 

Ingredients:

Citrus Marinade for Fish:

The foundation for this recipe uses orange juice as a fish marinade. The addition of fresh lemon juice and soy sauce creates a sweet and salty marinade that compliments the umami of the fish nicely. Orange marinades for fish pair nicely with white fish, salmon, and even swordfish. 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup of orange juice, fresh squeezed is best
  • Juice from one lemon (reserve the zest)

Serve white wine marinated fish with a side of rice pilaf and a tossed salad for a delicious and healthy meal. 

Ingredients: 

  • 1/3 cup of white wine (Chardonnay or a Sauvignon Blanc) 
  • Three tablespoons of white wine vinegar

 Tequila Lime Marinade for Fish:

A tequila lime marinade fish recipe is a great way to add some flair to your meal. Tequila lime halibut is excellent by itself, or in fish tacos with fresh vinegar slaw. Don't forget to set aside some tequila for the chef!

  • Marinade halibut for up to 1 hour. Marinate other types of mild white fish for only thirty minutes. 
  • Cook fish using your desired cooking method. A tequila lime marinade would be great as a grilled mahi mahi marinade.

Jerk Fish Marinade:

A jerk marinade is always best when you use fresh ingredients. In a pinch, you can opt for dried herbs and seasonings, but if you have the opportunity to buy fresh ingredients, it's worth the time and effort.

Mustard marinades are one of the best halibut marinades. The combination of white wine, spicy mustard, and cayenne pepper stand up perfectly to hardy halibut fillets.

Grilled Halibut Marinade with Soy Sauce:

If you're looking for a sweet marinade that works for a variety of fish types, this soy sauce and brown sugar marinade might be perfect for you.
