1 1/2 T whole grain mustard
2 T olive oil
1 T lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
4 fresh basil leaves, shredded
salt and pepper to taste
mix the ingredients, then use to marinate some fish. I used 2 filets about the size of the palm of my hand each. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 20 mins. Wrap in foil topped with an onion slice, cook over bbq for 10 mins (skin side down) and serve with rice and salad with honey mustard dressing! YUM! Sauce would also be tasty on chicken or mushrooms!
