Butter Parmesan Striped Bass

Lillian Russo


This recipe and this bass were both given to me by my husbands co-worker. I can honestly say that this is the best broiled filet of fish I ever ate!!! The butter, the wine, the lemon zest and the parmesan cheese all go so well with this fish! Thank you Jim Speer!!! I added my photo.
