Place the fish on a cake rack in a roasting pan. Roast until the fish just flakes, 10 to 15 minutes. To crisp the top, turn the oven to broil and place the fish under the broiler for about 2 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and serve immediately. Note: This may be prepared 4 hours in advance through step 3 (except for preheating the oven) and refrigerated. Serves 4.

South Carolina Striped Bass


2 Striped Bass Fillets

1 cup white corn meal

1 cup all purpose flour

2 cups buttermilk

Lemon Pepper seasoning, to taste


1. Preheat oil in fryer or Dutch oven over medium-high heat.

2. Cut bass into nuggets, place in a bowl with buttermilk and allow to soak

(refrigerated) for at least four hours.

3. Drain buttermilk, but do not rinse fish.

4. Combine corn meal and flour in a zipper top plastic bag.

5. Add fish pieces to the flour mixture a few at a time, shaking bag regularly to coat. 6. Remove fish nuggets and carefully place into hot oil. 7. Fry for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown. 8. Remove from oil, drain, and sprinkle with lemon pepper seasoning

Fried Stripers

Season moist fillets to taste and place in a zip-lock bag with cornmeal. Zip up and shake to coat. Fry in hot oil until golden brown & fish is white and flaky inside.

One variation we really like is to season the fillets, then coat them in a bowl with mustard, add a couple of drops of Louisiana hot sauce, then coat and fry as described above.

You may want to add a little extra salt when seasoning, as frying seems to remove some of it.

We use peanut oil for frying fish. It holds up well and is reusable. Just try to keep it from overheating (when it smokes), and you can clean it by frying French fries last, then strain it when cool to remove the cornmeal and crumbs, put it back in original container and keep in freezer until next time.

Baked Striper With Bleu Cheese Dip

1 medium shallot (diced)

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon dried parsley

1/2 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning

4 tablespoons pickled jalapenos (chopped)

1 medium tomato (chopped)-summer tomatoes are the yummiest

16 oz Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing

1/4 cup whipped cream cheese 3/4 cup cooked striper (finely shredded)

Striper Preparation (Foil Steamed):

Remove skin and all dark meat, then place filets in foil packet Drizzle with fresh lemon juice Lightly salt and pepper Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of dried parsley over filets Seal packet tightly-cook 425 degrees for about 20 minutes. Cooking time will vary with thickness of filets. Fish should flake easily. In medium bowl, combine bleu cheese dressing and cream cheese. Fold in cream cheese, being careful not to break up bleu cheese chunks. Add seasonings, then shallots, tomatoes and jalapenos. Finally, fold in shredded striper.

Don't be afraid to add or delete ingredients according to your taste preference. Suggested dippers are fresh vegetables, crackers, corn chips and bread sticks.

Baked Striper Italiano

Cut striper fillets in to serving size.

Toss in olive oil.

Splash with lemon or lime juice and coat with Old Bay Seasoning. Cover fillets with several thin slices of sweet onions. Take whole canned tomatoes, half them and place two halves over each portion. Sprinkle lightly with a touch of Old Bay or Seasoning Salt, and sprinkle with sweet basil (fresh or dried).

Bake for 25 to 35 minutes at 375 degrees. Serve over rice.

(Note:ALL Striper meat is done when the meat turns "white.") A very impressive presentation at any meal.

Directions for smoked fish


Brine your fish with this basic brine solution:

  • 1/2 cup non-iodized salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 quart water

Stir until completely dissolved Place fish in the solution, being careful to insure that the fish is completely covered with the brine and place in the refrigerator. Thick chunks of 1" or more should be in brine 8 to 12 hours. Thin chunks of less than 1" 6 to 8 hours is sufficient.

Remove fish from brine and rinse each piece under cold water. Gently pat dry and lay pieces on paper towel to air dry for one hour. (After one hour you will notice the fish has a glazed film on it. This is called the Pellicle which is a normal and desired result of the brining process). When the fish is sticky to the touch it is ready.

Smoke fish for about 2 hours at 200 F. Use your favorite wood chips or chunks when smoking and experiment to find the taste that best suits your taste. Hickory, Alder, Apple and Cherry or combinations of these work well. Add wood chips about every 30 minutes if necessary (depending on how much smoke taste you want.

To cut down on smoking time, remove skin from fish before putting in brine, then place fish in cheese cloth after the brine process (this helps get rid of fish oils faster and cuts your smoking time by about 1/4).

My favorite smoked fish are;
