Cerveza and Lime Fish Marinade

contributed by Deb Curtis Reno

2 cups minced onion
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup seeded, minced jalapeno pepper
1/4 cup minced garlic
1 cup oil
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup Mexican beer
2 tablespoons tequila
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon ground cumin
Combine the onion, cilantro, jalapeno pepper, garlic, oil, lime juice, beer, tequila, black pepper, and cumin in a blender; blend until smooth. Marinate fish or shrimp in the refrigerator in this marinade up to 2 hours before grilling.

I used only about half a cup of onion and no tequila.  Also, I didn’t put all the stuff in the blender…I just combined it in a ziploc and marinated the marlin for about a half hour.  I wish I would have marinated it longer…
