Salmoriglio | Little Brine

Salmoriglio is an ancient Sicilian sauce made with lemon, olive oil, garlic, and fresh oregano. I use it as a marinade for meats, fish, and grilled vegetables. The bite of the garlic mixed with the freshness of the oregano and acidity from the lemons creates a beautifully balanced infusion.
