Baked Striped Bass Recipe with Orange-Lime Sauce

1 whole striped bass, 6 pounds scaled and cleaned
3 bay leaves
extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup of water
5 oranges
5 limes
salt and pepper

First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Then place the whole striped bass into a large baking dish. Season the inside of the fish cavity with salt and pepper. Drizzle the inside and out with the olive oil. And place the 3 bay leaves in the cavity. Add 1/4 cup of water in the baking dish. Now bake it for about 30 minutes or until the fish is done cooking.

While the fish is cooking, squeeze the juice from the oranges and the limes into a saucepan. Mix in 1/2 cup of olive oil, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat over medium heat. Just as it begins to simmer, turn heat down to low just to keep it warm while the fish cooks. Serve the orange lime sauce with the striped bass. You can pour it right on top of the fish meat on your plate or use it as a dip.

Note: You can also substitute the olive oil for butter or margarine if you want.

My husband catches striped bass all of the time. This is one of the striped bass fish recipes that he and his fishing partners really enjoy eating from the fish that he brings home. i hope you all like it as much as we do.

Jason's response: Awesome! This striped bass dish sounds delicious. And the orange-lime sauce is a great compliment for it. I just might have to give this one a try. Thanks for the recipe.

The orange-lime sauce is what really kicks this fish dish up a notch.

My wife and I made this baked striped bass recipe for a little family get together. We actually served it in small portions as an appetizer while waiting on the main course to finish off cooking.

Not everybody seems to be into fish, but the sweet smell of this was too tempting for most of those with empty stomachs to resist.

We had 18 people over, and all but 3 tried it. None the less, it was a huge hit. A few even requested more of the baked striped bass with the main meal.

Thanks for submitting such a wonderful recipe. It was delicious! And easy to cook.
