For a nice and simple meal, try Basic Striped Bass. With only four ingredients, this pan-grilled fish will definitely make the dinner rotation.
4 (6-ounce) striped bass fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle striped bass fillets with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add fish to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.
My review is for the entire meal suggested by Cooking Light, including the warm bacon vinaigrette, mushrooms, and mashed potatoes. It was really an excellent meal. While it took me longer than 40 minutes, it was still pretty quick given the amount of food. I couldn't find striped bass filets so I tried cod, which was okay, but cod didn't hold up well to the strong flavor of the bacon vinaigrette. I tried again with halibut, which was much more expensive but delicious. We really liked the mushrooms as well. The mashed potatoes were solid but I'll probably doll them up a little more next time. This is definitely a keeper recipe to use the next time I find well-priced fresh fish.

This is such a nice and simple recipe. Striped bass has a wonderful flavor on its own but I paired this with Cooking Light's Warm Bacon Vinaigrette. Check out my post here: http://www.icancookthat.org/2012/04/grilled-striped-bass-with-bacon.html
