This white bass recipe requires minimal preparation and tastes heavenly when served with a lemon scampi sauce

Serves: 2-3
Total time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound white bass fillets
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 6 large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Splash of white wine
  • 2 ounces vegetable stock
  • 1 tablespoon butter, rolled in flour
  • ½ teaspoon fresh, finely chopped parsley

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place white bass fillets in a baking pan, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Add 2 tablespoons water to the pan to keep the fish moist during cooking. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the fillets flake easily with a fork.

4. Garnish with sliced lemon and serve with your favorite sides.
