So I've started playing with fish much more frequently. My favorite one is HANDS DOWN the yellow fin tuna steaks. After that I really like swordfish and am starting to like salmon if its done the right way.
Yesterday I decided to do a mongolian garlic style marinade for some grilled swordfish steaks:
Blend the following to a puree in the food processor:
1/2 med onion (quartered) (might sub this w/ scallions next time)
red pepper (de-seeded &
1/4c dry white wine
1t Kosher Salt
1/4t black pepper
1 whole chipotle pepper (optional but I love it, could replace the red pepper w/ a couple of these)
mix into this w/ out emulsifying it 1/4c of chopped cilantro
Lightly score the top of your fish and cover in marinade (rub it in a bit) then let rest refrigerated for 2~4hrs. Grill according to thickness turning only once on high heat. For my ~1" steaks this was ~5min per side.
I served this with some Quinoa (1st time) under a basic prep tossed w/ some red chili paste, evoo, & lime juice.
The results were delish! Of course I forgot pictures again.
For those looking for an Asian inspired marinade try this one from the food network. One of my favorites!
