Sweet Soy Marinade for fish

There's nothing better than freshly caught fish on the BBQ and living in Queensland we are blessed with a variety of fresh fish, and insanely beautiful weather, there's a reason they say 'Queensland - beautiful one day, perfect the next'.

This quick and easy marinade for fish is perfect for any meaty fish like salmon, tuna or mahi mahi. Serve with a light green, leafy salad and a wedge of lime for a refreshing summer dinner. Or go for the ultimate fancy comfort food and serve with chips and a little siracha lime mayo (mix a little bit of siracha and mayonnaise in a bowl with a squeeze of lime juice).

Sweet Soy Marinade for fish Serves: 6 Nutritional Information Calories: 160 Carbs: 2g Fat: 1.3g Protein: 33.3g Ingredients 800g of fish whole or fillets (salmon, tuna or mahi mahi, I used mahi mahi)


60g brown onion

1tsp lemon, garlic & herb seasoning

1/4tsp cracked black pepper

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup monkfruit sweetener

1/3 cup water Instructions

  1. Chop onion into quarters.

  2. Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth.

  3. Place fish into a large freezer bag

  4. Pour marinade over the fish and give it a gentle massage to ensure the fish is coated.

  5. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours, or overnight to infuse the flavour into the fish really well.

  6. When ready to cook, take the fish out of the fridge, at least 30 minutes before cooking.

  7. Lightly spray the BBQ grill plate or grate to prevent the fish from sticking and preheat the BBQ to a medium heat.

  8. Place the fish onto the grill and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, around 7-10 minutes depending on the size of the fish.

  9. Serve with a light green salad and a wedge of lime or chips.

Too cold to BBQ?

If it's too cold to BBQ, or you're making this for a weeknight dinner after work, simply preheat the oven to 180°C and pop the fish in for 8-10 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork.
