Get out your favorite piece of fish, you can use a variety of fish for this recipe. I have found that haddock and talapia are the best but everyone has a preference. Rinse the pieces of fish and lay on paper towels for a few minutes to dry while you prepare the ingredients. Pat the fish dry before you place into the bag later on.You will use a large ziploc bag to fill up that way it eliminates any mess and extra bowls. Place all of the following ingredients into the bag.

1/2 cup of olive oil, 1/2 cup of lemon juice or orange juice, 1 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of ground pepper, 1 crushed garlic clove, and 1 teaspoon of dill. Mix all of these around by shaking the bags gently.

Open the bag and place the fish you will be using into the bag to marinade. Squeeze most of the air out before sealing. Make sure that you have allowed the marinade to sort of get on the fish, by squishing the bag around but be sure not to press hard and damage your fish. Marinade in the fridge for 20 minutes, remove, and then bake as desired.

*Discard of any left over marinade, resusing marinades can be a serious health hazard that could cause food poisoning.

*Make sure you only leave your fish to marinade 20 minutes, you really do not want to do it any longer.
