Heart Health Week: Fish Souvlaki Recipe
We’re ending our Heart Health and Blood Pressure recipe series is a traditional Mediterranean recipe. This simple marinade works well with a variety of white fish and you will be transported to the Mediterranean after taking the first bite.
What you’ll need:
2.5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2.5 teaspoons dried oregano
1/4 cup olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
6 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. white fish of choice cut into 1-inch pieces (cod, sea bass, halibut, mahi-mahi)
What you’ll do:
1. Using a container that has a lid, mix the lemon juice, oregano, olive oil, salt and garlic. 2. Once the ingredients are mixed, add the fish. Put the lid on the container (make sure it’s sealed!) and shake to combine.
3. Let this marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes. Turn the fish and marinate for an additional 15 minutes.
4. Remove the fish and use some of the marinade to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Heat on medium and add the fish and cook through. You can also cook the fish on the grill if you prefer. 5. Serve on pita bread with sliced tomato and lettuce.

Serve the fish on top of a salad.
Try this with shrimp instead of fish. If grilling, try using skewers.
