  • Striped Bass recipies

    Came across some great recipes for blues and bass. These were real good and I generally don't eat fish. I finally stopped overcooking it, just cook till meat flakes easy with fork. That makes a big difference!

    Super Summer Grilled Bluefish
    "Have a ton of bluefish and don't know what to do with it? Give this a try! Bluefish has a reputation for being a very strong fish. This super citrus marinade gives this grilled fish a bright and delicious flavor. I just made some (which I caught and froze) and it came out superb."

    Arthur Treachers Batter
    This is good with striper, cod, blackfish, seabass and fluke. I Have never tried it with bluefish.

    If the filets are large cut into 3x 2 rectangles.
    Flour all pieces and set aside.
    Preheat a pot of oil for deep frying (at least 400 dgrees, but Ive never checked)
    1 cup buttermilk pancake batter mix
    1 cup club soda
    teaspoon salt
    tablespoon onion powder
    *2 cups of pancake batter is more than enough for a 30 striper.

    Dip fish in batter to generously coat and deep fry.
    Enjoy with a beer.

    This was originally a chicken recipe that I tried with striper and it is delicious. When I make it for company they always ask for a copy of the recipe. Dont let the list of ingredients deter you its actually pretty easy to make, you just have to plan ahead a little. Enjoy.


    Striper in Adobo


    6 large cloves of garlic
    1 TBSP. finely chopped fresh ginger
    1 tsp Kosher or sea salt
    1 tsp ground cumin
    2 TBSP orange juice
    2TBSP lime juice
    cup lager beer (see sounds good already)


    1 large red sweet pepper seeded and coarsely chopped

    cup coarsely chopped onion
    cup coarsely chopped sweet green pepper (or cubanella)
    cup fresh cilantro leaves
    cup cider vinegar
    cup olive oil
    4 cloves garlic peeled and smashed
    1 jalapeno pepper stem removed, halved and seeded (optional, I dont use it)
    tsp kosher salt
    tsp ground cumin

    Place striper filet in a resealable plastic bag. Using food processor mash 6 large garlic cloves, ginger 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ground cumin to a paste. Place in a small bowl and stir in the olive oil, orange juice, lime juice and beer. Pour over the striper, seal bag and turn to coat. Chill 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

    For the sauce, in a food processor combine red and green sweet peppers, onion, cilantro, vinegar, cup olive oil, 4 cloves garlic, jalapeno, teaspoon salt and teaspoon cumin. Cover and pulse until finely chopped (should still have small pieces of pepper).

    Drain the striper, reserving the marinade. Preheat your BBQ grill and cook the filet brushing with the marinade as you go. I have made this in the oven, baking at 400 degrees but the grill is definitely better. Have some margaritas as you cook.

    Serve with a topping of the sauce with more in bowls available on the table.
