Used freshly caught fish from the East Coast ($9.00 for 4 filets) & made this recipe that night ----- Instead of Bass we used Grouper & my husband & I were stabbing each other for the last piece - ha ha!!! We made it again that week for company & they said it was better than they had bought in a nice restaurant the night before. It was easy to follow instructions, & easy to make while I was talking & enjoy a glass of wine! LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chile Pepper Striped Bass
A little salt sprinkled onto the fillets balances and enhances fiery flavors from the marinade. Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) has about one-fourth the sodium of dry breadcrumbs but offers the same satisfying crunch to sautéed fish.
