So excited to announce the addition of five new F.I.S.H. exclusive sauces and marinades! We were honoured to have Jack Chen, head chef of Royal Dinette, create these bold, innovative marinades for us—exotic additions that compliment your home-made seafood dishes and elevate them to rock-star restaurant quality. Our in-house chef Joon meticulously crafts these sauces from scratch with only the freshest available ingredients.

I’ve spent many afternoons taste-testing and cooking with these marinades before stocking them in our store, and I compiled a list of everything you’d want to know about each one. Happy cooking!

Chimichurri
A Latin American sauce popularly used for grilled meats and seafood. Each region in South America has its own take on this condiment. We opted to make the traditional green sauce from Uruguay comprised of fresh cilantro and parsley, oil, red-wine vinegar, garlic, cumin, chili flakes, and salt. It’s a perfect balance of salty, sweet, sour, and spicy and pairs perfectly with snapper, halibut, and salmon.

Sake Soy
Sake is a traditional Japanese rice wine that’s very versatile and fantastic for both drinking and cooking. Since our sake miso marinade has become so popular over the years, we wanted to feature another marinade highlighting sake. Our sake soy marinade uses equal parts of sake, soy sauce, and mirin—an ideal accent for sablefish, sturgeon, ahi tuna, salmon, and scallops.

 

Chermoula
This piquant condiment is a staple seafood marinade in northern Africa combining lemon juice, fresh herbs, oil, garlic, cumin, and salt. Despite its simple ingredient list, chermoula packs a tasty punch with strong depth of flavour. Great compliment for prawns, salmon, and any white fish.

Aromatic Herb and Chili
We’ve been searching for a knockout tuna marinade/finishing sauce for quite a while. Thanks to chef Chen, we finally have a phenomenal combination of Asian-inspired flavours to showcase our beautiful Hawaiian ahi tuna: fresh herbs, sambal, ginger, honey, lime juice, fish sauce, soy sauce, and mirin. Although specifically created for our fresh tuna, this sauce also works well with all types of shellfish.
