Striped Bass

Fad ingredients come and go, but striped bass has a longstanding hold on America’s kitchens. The first recorded striped bass fishing in America is from colonial times, and since then it’s become the official fish of three states. What’s the appeal of this fish? Striped bass is a healthy, sustainable form of seafood that cooks up into flakey and tender fillets. Another thing we love? Its versatility. Our F&W guide to striped bass includes recipes that range from summery Striped Bass fish tacos with avocado to a comforting cold weather dish of sautéed Striped Bass with Sweet Carrots and Cider Glaze.

Grilled Striped Bass with Plums and Potato-Mushroom Papillotes

The Good News Cyril Renaud first made this fish dish in winter with oranges and liked it so much he adapted it for the warm months, using plums instead. Almost everything about this recipe helps make it both delicious and healthy. Grilling the plums and fish turns them nicely smoky with almost no added fat. And roasting vegetables en papillote (in a paper or foil pouch) intensifies their taste; more flavor comes from a little tamari.    More Grilled Seafood Recipes
