Lemons and seafood have a natural affinity. This delicious marinade can be used for a whole fish or fillets, in dressings or on salads.


  • 4 sprigs fresh mint
  • 3 large whole cloves garlic
  • One 1-inch wide spiral of lemon zest
  • 4 cups white wine vinegar


Place the sprigs of fresh mint, garlic cloves and lemon zest in a sterilized glass jar.

Add the white wine vinegar to cover the ingredients in the jar completely.

Seal the jar and let stand in a warm, bright area for about 10 days (but not in direct sunlight) before using. Store in a cool, dark place. This marinade will keep for about 2-3 months.
