Striped Bass (aka Rockfish)

Catch method: gill net

Striped bass (aka rockfish) is high in protein and low in calories – a 3 oz serving has 15g of protein and just 80 calories. Add the health benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids, and a firm white flesh that loves everything from the grill to a pan sauté and you’ve got a whole lot to love in one little fillet.


Striped Bass can be substituted in recipes that call for snapper, halibut, cod or grouper. This is a great opportunity to refer to the classic Mark Bittman guide, White Fillet a Dozen Ways.
