Tidal Bay Marinade & Dressing

This fresh, zesty sauce, made with Tidal Bay can be used as a tasty marinade or tangy salad dressing. Use it to marinate fresh, local salmon, trout or tuna filets or to dress a fresh salad. Enjoy with a glass of the same Tidal Bay for a harmonious pairing.


2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup neutral flavoured oil, or mild olive oil
1 large lemon, juiced
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup Tidal Bay (white wine)
1 tsp kosher salt
 1/4 cup parsley leaf, chopped


Preparation time: 5 mins
Makes: one large bottle of dressing or enough to marinate six or more 6oz filets
  1. Combine all ingredients (except oil and parsley) in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk vigorously until uniform.
  2. Slowly add oil, continue to whisk until the mixture emulsifies (combines together and appears to thicken).
  3. Whisk in chopped parsley.
  4. Taste your dressing & add salt to taste.

To achieve the best flavour, allow the fish to marinade for up to three hours.
