Marinated Salmon in Herb Oil

This recipe is sooooo good, you will want to know why you haven't cook it before now - try it and I promise you will like it. 
You can use flounder or halibut, haddock or just about any type of fish to your liking.

Friday's Fish

Marinated Salmon in Herb Oil
4 servings

4 large salmon steaks
4 garlic cloves -crushed
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup fresh oregano
1/2 cup fresh parsley
Freshly ground black pepper -to taste
2 teaspoons of bourbon
2 cups olive oil
Juice of 1 lime
Salt -to taste
Lime wedges for garnish

Place the garlic, herbs, black pepper to taste and bourbon in a food processor and chop coarsely. Rub the mixture on both sides of desired fish and place in a glass baking dish. (Do not add the salt or the lime at this time) Add the oil and turn the fish a couple of times.

The fish should be nearly or completely submerged in the oil, if not, add more. For best results the fish should be covered and refrigerated overnight. But it is also pretty good to marinate it for just a few hours.

When ready to cook, pat off excess oil and lightly salt to taste. Grill, broil or bake to your liking. I prefer to grill. Brush the limejuice over the fish during cooking. Do not overcook. Serve with lime wedges at the table.

Note: Use lemon in place of lime and soy sauce instead of the bourbon.
