Oooh, that looks good - Pickled fish recipe from BADIA, the Dan Marino Foundation Go The Extra Yard partner


From the groves of sunny Spain, home to the Mediterranean spirit and Flamenco dancing, comes Badia Extra Virgin Olive Oil with an intense green color, distinctive of its premium nature, rich aroma and flavor, and renowned health benefits. Now available in stores near you.

Pickled Fish

4 pounds of white fish, cut in 1" thick slices
4 teaspoons salt
3/4 cup oil, to fry the fish
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
30 grains of Badia's whole black pepper
3 Badia's whole bay leaves
4 garlic cloves, peeled
4 medium sized onions, sliced

2 cups Badia Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Wash and salt the fish. Cover and let stand 1/2 hour. In a 3-liter casserole dish, add the olive oil for the sauce, vinegar, salt, pepper, bay leaves and garlic cloves. Cook on low heat for 20 minutes. Add the onions and cook for 10 more minutes. Remove from heat and let cool completely. While the sauce is cooling, fry the fish in a frying pan over medium heat. Do not let it cook for too long, approximately 8 minutes on each side. Once the fish is fried and cooled, place in a deep serving dish with a lid. Pour the cooled sauce over it and cover. Let rest for 24 hours so that the fish absorbs the flavor of the sauce. Place in the refrigerator. Serve chilled.

Ground broken in March for the Marino Campus

We are very excited to announce the commencement of the renovations. On March 19, 2013, ground was broken, and the first sounds of saws and hammers were welcome music to our ears. Due to the construction on the site, we are unable to facilitate tours at this time, but we do anticipate opening the application process in early Summer and offering tours in the Fall. We will continue to keep you posted with emails on our progress and invite you to visit our new website, which we will update regularly with exciting news and announcements. Thank you for your patience and continued support of Marino Campus – a first-of-its-kind opportunity for our young adults.
