TGIF! Beautiful weekend a head of us!!!
Usually drizzled on swordfish or tuna, this sauce works well on any meaty white fish. Just broil the fish and spoon on the sauce or use some as a marinade for a couple of hours. Salmoriglio, also known as salmorigano, is also a good marinade for a roast pork loin. Rub the meat with a paste of garlic and oregano, baste with the mixture while cooking and spoon a little of the sauce on after cooking. This is great with broccoli or cauliflower with olives and toasted breadcrumbs.
Makes ¾ cup, enough for 4 portions of fish
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 teaspoons finely minced garlic
½ to ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons water (optional)
3-4 large Tablespoons of Mango Salsa
1 tsp. Mango balsamic vinegar
Combine the oregano and garlic in a mortar. Grind with a pestle and gradually add ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil to make a paste. Add the lemon juice, salt, pepper and parsley and mix well. Gradually beat in the rest of the olive oil. One can also assemble this marinade in your blender. Top your swordfish with the Mango salsa: Chopped mangoes, tomatoes, cilantro, fresh herbs and Mango balsamic.
This technique makes grilling your whole chicken so much easier. #Spatchcock chicken.. Marinate the chicken at least an hour before grilling or oven roasting. Here we used a combination of two of our olive oils: Smoked & Persian Lime with Sicilian lemon Balsamic vinegar, lemon juice & a dry rub with smoked paprika.
