Fish Marinated in Tomato and Caper Paste with Jake’s Mesa Breeze Basil Lime infused Marinade

I have many, many great recipes and so while thumbing through some of them I found this great fish recipe. This is a dish that can be prepared on the barbie or in your oven. It's an upscale dish that's really easy to make. In addition to that when you use Jake's Basil Marinade you get this nice Rosemary, Tarragon flavoring with a little spice kick behind it...exceptional!

Serving size: Serves 6
Cooking time: Less than 30 minutes

Excellent for fish, chicken, beef, lamb.

Fish is best marinated for no more than 20 minutes. Recipe is best cooked just before serving.

¾ cup mayonnaise
cooking oil spray
6 thick firm white fish fillets

¼ cup tomato paste
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2/3 cup capers, rinsed, drained
2 teaspoons fennel seeds, toasted
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 small red chili, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh dill leaves
4 oz Jake’s Mesa Breeze Basil Lime Infused Marinade

TOMATO AND CAPER PASTE: Blend or process tomato paste, garlic, capers, fennel seeds, oil, chili and dill leaves until almost smooth.

Combine ¼ cup of the Tomato, Caper Paste and Jake’s Mesa Breeze Basil Lime Infused Marinade with the mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Line an oven tray with foil, spray with cooking oil spray.

Place the fish on the prepared tray; spread the remaining Tomato and Caper Paste on top side of fish. Cook the fish under a preheated grill or covered barbecue until the flesh flakes and is just cooked through.

Serve fish with green salad, lemon wedges and the mayonnaise mixture.

This marinated fish recipe is a true crowd pleaser. All fish lovers will line up early to get their share!
