Chile Pepper Striped Bass

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.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 lemon wedge)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped seeded Anaheim chile
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

Preparation

1. Combine the first 3 ingredients and 2 teaspoons oil in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add fish to bag; seal and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
