Tips

You can use other fish as you like, such as cod and salmon fillets. If you are in a hurry, you can marinate fish for a shorter time. Or if you are planning ahead and you want to marinate it for example before going to work, you can prepare it early, marinate the fish in the fridge, and cook at your convenience.
We paired this recipe with a fresh salad made with an orange, avocados, pumpkin seeds, balsamic vinegar, and EVOO.
