Entree, Striped Bass
Smothered Striper Servings: 2
Estimated cooking time: 15 min Posted By: TopH2O

This is a great dish I came up with one night.  Simple to make.  My girlfriend is not a big fish fan, but absolutely begs me for this one.  Give it a go...

Ingredients - (Servers 2)
-1 medium size Striped Bass Filet (cut into bite sized pieces)
-1 Tbl spn Chopped garlic (Garlic powder as backup)
-3 Tbl spn Butter or margarine
-1 small onion, diced (Red Onion preferably)
-1/2 Red Bell Pepper, chopped (Optional)
-1/2 Bottle of Italian dressing
-S & P to taste
-Sliced lemon or Lemon Juice
-Olive Oil

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
-In a shallow baking dish, spread some olive oil on the bottom of the dish and then arrange the bite sized chunks of bass tightly along the bottom, 1 piece thick, try not to overlap the chunks too much.
-Sauté the onions, red peppers and garlic over a med-high flame, in olive oil, until soft (5 min).  Reduce heat.
-Add the butter or margarine to the sauté, stirring to melt.
-Next add the ½ bottle of Italian dressing, and a squirt of lemon juice.
-S&P to taste
-Next, pour your mixture over the bass chunks, spreading evenly.  The idea is to cook the fish covered in the mixture.
-Cover the dish with foil, and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until the bass chunks become flaky or the mixture begins bubbling.
-Do not over cook this dish.  Try your best to keep an eye on the fish, making sure to pull it out as soon as the chunks are cooked thru.  I will sometime pull the dish out early as the hot juices will continue to cook the fish even after it has been removed from the oven.

Hope you enjoy this one….
