Jewels says: "OK, I have to admit. I use this recipe a lot. I mean, a lot. It's a simple concoction that makes everything taste bright and fresh—not just on fish! I do use it on all kinds of fish and shrimp, first as a marinade and then I spoon some on
Servings: Makes about 1 1/2 cups
Ingredients 1 shallot1/2 bulb fennel1 cup extra-virgin olive oil1 lemon , zested1 lime , zested1/2 tsp. saltA few cranks of a pepper millA few crushed pink peppercorns
- 1 tsp. curry powder (or to taste)
- Handful fresh Italian parsley or dill
- 1/2 stalk lemongrass , finely chopped
1. Cut the shallot and fennel in tiny dices (or process in a blender) and add all the other ingredients, including any optional ones you desire.
This will keep for a few days so make a batch and use it more than once!
Jewels' Smart Idea
For salads, I add this marinade to red quinoa and toss it in with cucumbers or tomatoes to spice them up. It also makes a wonderful marinade to grill tomatoes.
