Lemon Broiled Striped Bass
- 1 1/2 pounds striped bass fillets trimmed, and cut into serving-size portions
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
Prepare striped bass fillets by cutting fillets in half removing the dark flesh along the dark lateral line that runs through the center of the fillet. Also remove any dark flesh on the side of the fillet that had the skin and along the belly area. Cut trimmed fillets into serving-size portions.
In a glass baking dish combine the juice of 1 lemon, lemon peel, brown sugar, olive oil and salt and mix well. Place fish portions in a single layer in the marinade mixture and turn to coat both sides. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 1/2 to 1 hour, turning fish once.
Coat broiler pan with vegetable spray or oil. Transfer fish to broiler pan and reserve marinade to baste the fish. Broil fish 4 to 5 inches from the heat source for 5 to 7 minutes. Turn and baste with marinade. Broil for an additional 4 to 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Place broiled fillets on a warm platter, garnish with lemon wedges and parsley and serve.
