This Greek Grilling Marinade is fast to put together and quite delicious, particularly with fish. It lends its tart lemony zing to meaty white fish like hake, cod, or grouper and can totally transform tilapia. It’s good with chicken too. Give it a try.
1. In a mixing bowl, combine olive oil, lemon juice and zest and the capers. Mix with a wire whisk to combine.
2. Transfer to a gallon-sized zip-lock bag. Add the whole sprigs of herbs and the chives.
3. Place your meat or fish in the bag with marinade mixture. Seal. Marinade for up to 12 hours before grilling.

This is great to do the night before, but if you can’t, fish can benefit from marinating even as little as 30 minutes
