Marinated White Fish

I got a fairly large piece of swordfish at the seafood counter the other day, but you could use any good textured fish, like cod, halibut, or mahi mahi.  After I cooked it, I served it on top of greens, but it would be delicious in tacos, or with rice or pasta.

Marinated White Fish

Total Time: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 2-4


  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup dry sherry, white wine, or rice wine
  • Juice of one lemon or lime
  • 2 TBSP soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 chopped jalapeño
  • 1 1/2 lbs white fish, like cod, mahi, swordfish, or halibut


  1. Combine all ingredients, except fish. Place fish in marinade and place in fridge for 2-4 hours. Turn it frequently, if it's not completely covered.
  2. Heat oven to 425.
  3. Remove fish from marinade, place on greased roasting pan. Place marinade in small baking pan.
  4. Bake fish for about 10 min. The time depends on the thickness of the fish. Bake the marinade (in separate pan), while you're baking the fish. You can also grill the fish, and heat the marinade separately.
  5. I served it on top of greens, drizzled with the baked marinade. A small drizzle of sesame oil, and sprinkle of sesame seeds are delicious, also.
