    There are two reasons to marinate: to tenderise and to enhance flavour. Marinades are a combination of acidic ingredients (ie lemon juice or wine), flavourings (herbs, spices, garlic etc) and a glug or two of oil. Avoid marinating in metal containers because it can taint the flavour. Use a glass or ceramic bowl, or even a plastic bag. As with all things, a little sensitivity goes a long way, flavours will intensify with time, but too long is not really recommended for fish, as it can overpower. Overnight marinating is not essential, a couple of hours would be just fine. Half an hour if your really pressed.
