Roasted Striped Bass Atop Seasonal Vegetables Recipe

Whole striped bass, cleaned
Seasonal vegetables
Whole dill
Olive oil
Seasoning mix

If baking pan is large enough, cook the fish whole. If not, remove the tail and head. Slice or chop seasonal veggies in fairly large chunks and arrange in the bottom of a deep roasting pan.

Stuff whole dill into the fish cavity. Place fish on top of the vegetables.

Lance the fish. Rub the skin with olive oil, drizzling some on the veggies. Sprinkle salt, pepper and seasoning mix over everything.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, or until the flesh is firm to the touch and all one color.

Sturgeon Fish Tacos with Avocado Salsa Verde Recipe

1 lb fresh sturgeon filet
1 container French's fried onions
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tbsp each: Salt, pepper, garlic powder
Any desired toppings (like shredded cabbage, red onion, or sliced avocado)
Small flour or corn tortillas

Salsa ingredients
1/2 large avocado
1 bunch cilantro
Juice 2 limes
2 cloves garlic
2 large green tomatoes (or red, if that's all you can find)
1 jalapeño, seeds removed according to desired level of heat

Bring out your food processor. Begin by combining fried onion, breadcrumb, and spices in processor.

Process until smooth (but not superfine).

Pour mixture out into shallow dish and coat sturgeon on both sides. Place coated fish on a lined baking sheet and cook under broiler for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile, add all ingredients for salsa in food processor, and blend. Taste and add spices or extra lime as necessary. The salsa will have a slightly thicker consistency due to the avocado.

When fish is ready, carefully cut into cubes and serve in tortillas with the fresh salsa and any desired toppings.
