This is a really good marinade, but I would add some sea salt (to taste) and some freshly ground black pepper.

This was a mild-flavored marinade suitable for most any fish! When I seared the fish on high, a nice browned ("grilled") coating formed on the fish, and we liked that. DH and I thought it needed more flavor, so I sprinkled fish with some cajun seasoning after marinading it. Next time I will use half the olive oil to reduce calories, as it was more oily than necessary to keep the fish from sticking.

I picked this recipe for ZWT II, used it on grilled salmon last nite & it was pretty good. Using oregano & onion in a fish marinade was new for me, but worked very well. Marinades invite the user to suit their own tastes, so I admit I did. I reduced the olive oil to 1/4 cup & added lemon pepper seasoning salt + 1/4 cup Worcestershire for its smoky flavor we like so much. We make a light cream sauce using reserved marinades & this sauce was esp good! Thx.
