Here’s a simple white wine marinade that’s good for any seafood. To give it an Asian accent, substitute sesame oil for the olive oil and sake or mirin for the white wine. Marinate the seafood, covered in the refrigerator, one to two hours.


  • ½ cup dry white wine or white vermouth
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3


Combine the white wine, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, rosemary, bay leaves, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to mix. Use this marinade within an hour of preparing.
