A Delicious Fish Recipe with a Story!

A Delicious Fish Recipe with a Story...Butter Parmesan Striped Bass
Jim and his 47 lb. Striped Bass
This recipe and this bass were both given to me by my husbands co-worker named Jim Speer! When my husband told me that Jim had an amazing recipe for striped bass I said "Oh, that's nice"...never thinking he really had an amazing recipe for striped bass! He works in an office. He's not a Chef! How good can it be? But he does love to go fishing! So I knew the fish would be fresh!
Well, I can honestly say that this is the best broiled fillet of fish I ever ate!!!

 The butter, the wine, the lemon zest and the Parmesan cheese, all go so well with this fish! And the fact that Jim caught the fish only hours earlier, was just the cherry ontop of the sundae! Thank you Jim Speer, for the fish and the recipe!

A Delicious Fish Recipe with a Story...Butter Parmesan Striped Bass
Butter Parmesan Striped Bass

1-2 lb striped bass fillet - trimmed and cut into serving size portions
kosher salt
black pepper
4 Tbls. butter
2 Tbls. white wine, dry - not cooking wine
2 1/2 Tbls. fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 tsp. paprika

Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper on both sides and set aside.

Place just the butter, in shallow baking dish, large enough
to accommodate all the fish.

Place the dish with the butter in a 375 degree oven til the butter browns.

Then dip both sides of the fish in this browned butter and bake for 10 minutes, uncovered, on middle rack.

Sprinkle with lemon zest, wine, parmesan cheese and paprika. Broil on top rack at 500 degrees for 2-3 minutes or til parmesan cheese starts to bubble and brown.

To serve, spoon butter/wine sauce over fish.

  3. WOW!! Did he make you clean the fish? This looks awesome!

    1. lol...no, it was all cleaned and filleted when he gave it to me!

  4. Do you have any recommendations on a dry white wine.. I don't drink wine an wouldn't know where to begin on choosing a good one..thanks

    1. Oh, any dry white wine would work! I tend to use chardonnay or pinot grigio for cooking! I hope you'll try this and let me know! =D

  5. Is dry sherry wine ok to use?

    1. As long as it's not sweet at all. Please come back and let me know how you liked it! Thanks! =D
