Grilled Striped Bass



6 servings

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


6 (3/4-inch-thick) striped bass steaks (about 2 pounds)
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup sherry
1/3 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons dried dill weed, crushed
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Fresh parsley sprigs
Lemon slices


Rinse steaks thoroughly in cold water; pat dry, and place in a 13- x 9- x 2-inch baking dish.

Combine 1/2 cup butter, sherry, lemon juice, soy sauce, dill weed, garlic, and salt in a small bowl; stir well, and pour over steaks. Cover; marinate at room temperature 30 minutes, turning steaks once.

Remove steaks from marinade; reserve marinade. Grill steaks 4 inches from hot coals 10 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade.

Transfer steaks to a warm serving platter, and pour 2 tablespoons melted butter over fish. Garnish with parsley and lemon.
