Entree, Striped Bass
Blackened Striped Bass Servings: 4
Estimated cooking time: 15 minutes Posted By: legasea

Servings = 4

4 Plump Striped Bass fillets
Any dry rub Cajun/Blackening Seasoning (I like McCormick good for fish or chicken)
2 lemons
1/3 stick of butter or equal amount or margarine

Take a 12 to 16” Iron Skillet and set it on your BBQ
Set BBQ on HIGH for 15-20 minutes, close BBQ cover
Pan should get to about 500+ degrees with cover closed
Take 4 nice pieces of Striped Bass and trim off ALL dark meat from skin side. Coat all fillets with seasoning lightly rubbing into fish and add some pepper if you like
Take 1/3 stick of butter or margarine (butter is better) and put it in the pre-heated skillet
Be careful, hot stuff and some will splatter (that’s why I like doing this outside)
As soon as it is melted, put the fillets in the pan and squeeze a half lemon over the fish and close grill cover
Let the fish cook for 4-6 minutes until fish starts to blacken nice on the bottom
Turn fish over and squeeze more lemon over the fish and close BBQ lid
Cook until the fish is flaky (do NOT over cook)

Garnish with some fresh Parsley, lemons and serve

Goes great served over or next to some seasoned long grain rice (Uncle Bens will do fine), with fresh steamed Asparagus and some hollandaise sauce (basic Knorr store bought is fine) over the steamed asparagus

Add a bottle of White wine to the table ( I happen to like Pindar Winter White with this dish), and you are sure to enjoy this meal as much as I do.  Easy as well.
