Striped Bass - Glossary Term

view glossary term online:
A lean saltwater fish with flesh that is tender, white, and mildly sweet. The Striped Bass is a saltwater fish that migrates to fresh water to spawn. It is a versatile fish that can be prepared in many ways, but when grilling, it is best to place the fish in a fish basket because it does not hold together well. Trout, grouper, snapper, or monkfish can be used for substitutes if Striped Bass is not available. Striped Bass is also known as rockfish.

To check the fish for doneness, use the tip of a sharp knife and cut through the thickest part of the fillet. If the fish has been properly cooked, the meat will appear opaque, but will still be moist.
