Citrus and fresh herbs never disappoint in this fresh Basa marinade that makes a perfect addition to a summer night dinner plate.
Basa is a light, flakey, mild flavoured fish that easily soaks up butter, citrus and herb flavours, making it a great option for marinades. Don't have Basa? Try other white fish such as sole, mahi mahi, or herring with the same marinade.
Heres what you need:
1. juice of 1 fresh lemon or lime
2. 2 chives/green onions
3. 2 tbsp freshly chopped basil
4. 1 tbsp capers
5. dash of garlic powder
6. splash of extra virgin olive oil
7. Basa fillets
+ salt and pepper to taste
Heres what to do:
1. Rinse fish and place in a deep dish or plate. Always marinade at room temperature.
2. Combine the lemon juice, olive oil, fresh basil, garlic powder, and capers into a bowl and stir. Drizzle over fish and allow to marinade for ~20-30 mins. The acidity of the citrus will start to mildly cook the fish - not to worry. Toss the slided rind of the lemon/lime on top for some added flavour.
3. Heat a skillet or pan on medium high, and toss in 1 tbsp of unsalted grain fed butter just before you're ready to cook.
4. Place fish into the hot skillet, pouring in the remainder of the marinade as well. Cook ~3-4 mins each side.
So simple, so quick, so delicious! This made a great addition to a fruit-filled side salad, cooked quinoa, or whatever you heart desires.
