Roasted Branzino with Lemon and Thyme

Mild, flaky, and slightly sweet, branzino is a fish that's popular in Italian cuisine. Our favorite branzino recipe is to roast the whole fish; it's a smaller fish and a one-to-one-and-half pounds branzino will serve two. The fish is simply seasoned with olive oil, fresh thyme, and salt. The technique of roasting a whole fish works well for other fish beside branzino, try it with a one-to-three-pound round fish such as snapper, perch, cod, Arctic char, bass, sea bream, and haddock. Add five to eight minutes to the roasting time for two-to-three-pound fish.

Grilled Striped Bass

Rating: 3.5 stars 278
Our favorite striped bass recipe calls for filets of striper. You cook them simply on the grill with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and fresh oregano or thyme. Garnish with wedges of lemon and chopped chives for serving. This recipe also works well with other firm, white-flesh fish such as black sea bass, trout, or grouper.
