Marinade for Fish and Seafood - weekend recipe

There is a recipe book that I have that I use so frequently I had to actually go find it to get the title because I just call it the Thyme book.  It is entitled It's about Thyme by Marge Clark.  Marge Clark is considered to be one of the best early herb recipe book writers who was such an advocate for herbs in the 80s and 90s that when she passed away suddenly in an auto accident in 1999 we all lost an generous person willing to share the lessons of her herb and life experiences.  She published only a few books from her home in West Lebanon, Indiana, but all were a combination of herb tips, recipes and personal observations that made herbs so much more approachable for all of us.  I never got to hear her speak in public, but I feel like I know her the personable way she wrote her books.

Marinade for Fish and Seafood

1/2 cup olive oil
juice of 1/2 fresh lemon
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon thyme leaves, chopped
     or Lemon Verbena leaves, chopped
1/2 Tablespoon French Tarragon (or 1 teaspoon dried)
2 fresh green onions, finely chopped, including green tops

Combine all ingredients and add to seafood or fish.  Marinate for 30 minutes to 1 hour, but no more.  Broil, grill or bake according to any appropriate recipe.  Makes about 3/4 cup.

NOTE:  Marinating fish longer than 60 minutes results in "cooking" the fish.

Each month a theme is chosen and a number of recipes on that theme from my massive archive will be shared.  This year we have 12 new topics, different from the topics of last year.  To find the recipes of last year, check out this recipe link or search the blog with the topic Recipe2018

You can search the monthly theme by looking for the theme keyword in the search box and it will pull up the recipes on that theme as posted, so look at the bottom of the recipe in each posting for the KEYWORD in the () to search for each  month.  All recipes this year will be tagged Recipe2019 so you can find them all.
