This aromatic, Latin-style marinade is great for any kind of sweet, firm, flaky fish such as pompano, black sea bass or red snapper. Make it up to 3 days in advance and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it. The possibilities for enjoying the cooked fish are endless. Throw it on the grill along with colorful veggies like corn, peppers, and zucchini or sear it in skillet and pair with a black bean salad chock-full of tomatoes and cilantro. Or use the fish to stuff in corn tortillas for tacos or to top taco bowls. You can boil the leftover marinade and serve with the cooked fish if desired.
