Tips for marinating fish


A marinade is a great way to add flavor, keep the fish moist and prevent it from sticking to the grill.
However, whereas beef, especially tough cuts, benefit from long marinating times (often overnight), fish is a different story. Fish is naturally tender and therefore doesn’t need a liquid to break down any fibers and tenderize the flesh. In addition, it does not take very long for the flavors of the marinade to infuse the fish; the firmest fish steaks (such as swordfish) need to sit in the mixture one to two hours while most other types of fish only require 30 minutes.
