Vanessa "Nikita" Milare


this recipe was handed down to my mother from her mother. I'm sure I spelled the name wrong cause only my mom could read my grandmothers hand writing lol. I was born & raised in Hawaii. My dad use to go on a fishing trip once a month & he always made sure to catch at least 1 big fish. After he would come home, he would clean the big fish as my mom cleaned & put away the small fishes. My mom would them make the marinade & soak the fish. We knew what was for dinner the next day. My mother also used this marinade for making roast & roasting potatoes. Was so good...

How to Make Vinadoes


  1. First clean fish. Place on the side. Then mix all the ingredients together well. Place fish in a ziploc bag, pour marinade over fish & place in the ice box between 2 to 24 hrs. 24 hrs is best.
  2. Then remove from ice box & bag. Place in lager heavy frying pan over medium heat & fry on both sides for about 5 to 10 mins. You may also bake this in a 350F. oven for 10 to 20 mins. The longer you bake it the crispier the skin will become.
