Roasted Bass and Summer Vegetables – Fishermen (or fisherwomen) in your household? This recipe will have you prepared for that golden opportunity of a fresh catch!
I just want to say that I’ve always been more of a city girl. Then I married a country boy and we had two scruffy little boys. Suddenly, fishing became something my family does to pass the time. As such, there is always the risk that they may actually catch something and want to eat it.
Fortunately I’m a total foodie. The allure of the freshest-of-the-fresh fish in my kitchen for me to cook has helped me to be more open minded about my boys’ fascination with, err… hunting and gathering. Now if I could only get them to find me some truffles…
Lucky for me, early this summer my husband and oldest son caught a smallmouth bass. If you’re also lucky enough to have some freshly-caught bass in your kitchen, you should know that you posses something truly yummy. When cooked right, bass is meaty yet flakey, and has a wonderful buttery flavor.
My recipe for Roasted Bass and Summer Vegetables is simple and easy to prepare, guaranteeing you a scrumptious, flakey fish. My entire family LOVED this recipe, from my husband down to the picky six-year-old and eight-month-old. My littlest one was literally stuffing this fish in his mouth. I dare say, he had no idea what a culinary treat he was enjoying at his young age, but he sure did enjoy it, and I hope you will too!
