Grilled Fish with Brazilian Garlic Marinade

6 cloves garlic, peeled and quartered
1/2 medium onion, peeled and quartered
1/2 red sweet pepper, cored and seeded
2 Tblsp. olive oil
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 Tblsp. ketchup
2 tsp. sweet paprika
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly snipped cilantro
1-1/2 lb. fish steak or fillets, such as sea bass, swordfish, tuna, or salmon -- cut 1" thick

  • For marinade, combine the garlic, onion, red pepper, oil, wine, ketchup, paprika, salt, and pepper in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. Transfer to a shallow baking dish and stir in cilantro. Add the fish, spooning marinade over fish. Marinate in refrigerator for 2-4 hours, turning occasionally.
  • Drain fish, reserving marinade. Grill fish on rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 5 minutes.
  • Turn fish and brush with reserved marinade. Grill 3-7 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
