Marinating times vary with foods. Because seafood is more tender than other meats, it requires less marinating time, usually about 15 to 30 minutes. If left longer, the seafood begins to appear “cooked” from the acidity of the marinade. Not only is the texture changed, but the flavor of the marinade becomes too intense.

  • 4 medium snapper fillets
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 teaspoons fresh rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper

Combine orange juice, lemon juice, lime juice, oil, rosemary, salt and pepper in small nonreactive bowl. Place fish in baking dish and pour marinade over. Marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes, turning once.

Remove fish from marinade and place on lightly greased broiler pan. Broil about 4 inches from heat source for 10 to 12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Cut into halves. Serves 8.
