FIT CHEF HOW-TO: MAKE A FAST MARINADE

Because fish is already so tender, there’s no need to marinate it for more than half an hour to infuse it with flavor. “The secret to the perfect marinade is an acidic component, which can penetrate the protein,” says San Francisco-based chef Lynda Marren. This week, we use a simple, four-ingredient marinade (mirin, lemon juice, light miso paste, and finely chopped ginger) to make cod super flavorful. Try adding in jalapeños for heat.
