Pacific Fish Marinade

This marinade makes for a great summer flavor. I’ve used it as a marinade for smoke salmon, which leaves it so moist in the cente. The sweet citrus flavor also works to give a freshness to chicken and pork.  Skewer some vegetables and use this as a baste while they grill. For a good side to whip up quick, slice up some pears and carrots, top with a little of this and mix up. It may sound weird but it’s so tasty.



  • 1/4 Cup Lime Juice
  • 1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Diced Onion
  • 1 Tbsp Sugar (Preferably Brown)
  • 1 Tbsp Grated Lime Rind
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1 Tbsp Diced Habanero Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Grated Ginger
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper


  1. Start by heating a sauce pot on medium with a little bit of oil. Add the Onions and cook for about 6-7 minutes until they are soft and almost translucent.
  2. Clear a space in the middle and add the Garlic, Ginger and Habanero, saute for about 2 more minutes until you start to smell the Garlic.
  3. Turn the heat down to low and whisk in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Raise the heat to lowish-medium and let the sauce simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove and let cool.
