    spatchcock's Note:

    This is adapted from a recipe that came with some Penzeys spices I got as a wedding gift. It is fabulous. Cook time includes maximum possible marinade time. I think some feta sprinkled on top would be wonderful.

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a shallow bowl, mix oil, vinegar, pepper, basil/thyme and garlic.
    2. 2
      Coat both sides of fillets.
    3. 3
      Break bay leaves into 3-4 pieces, press onto both sides of fillets.
    4. 4
      Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight (overnight is better!) Remove bay leaves and discard extra marinade.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with salt and cook over medium high heat in large skillet (nonstick is best).
    6. 6
      For example: a thick cod fillet will need about 4 minutes per side, thin long fillets 2-3 minutes/side.
    7. 7
      Drippings in the pan are great on pasta--deglaze pan by adding a bit more red wine vinegar (or just WINE!) and toss with freshly cooked (not rinsed!) warm pasta.

      This marinade is wonderful! I used it on chicken tenders, so I tripled (!) the recipe since I would have so much more area to cover. Next time I will not triple the olive oil!! Maybe one extra Tablespoon would do it. Regardless, it was great. I fried polenta medallions in the remaining marinade, and served them and the chicken (the feta on top is such a great addition) with some grilled zuchinni. Fantastic! Thanks so much for sharing this. Updated to add that since I used tenders I marinated for less than an hour and it was still great. Looking forward to finding out what the marinade is like on fish!

      I marinated a mahi mahi fillet for 24 hours and it was just terrific. I didn't have enough "sauce" for pasta but I did use it over the fillet. This marinade is amazingly flavorful and I highly recommend it. The feta was the perfect finish. Dh remarked three times how good the fish was.
