Bass Thu, 04/1/04 9:53 AM (permalink)
Got a friend with several ponds on his ranch that were stocked long ago and then not fished for several years and now one of them seems to be full of small bass. Ordinarily i throw back bass--they are fun to catch, but i like to eat the crappie!--but the owner wants to reduce the number of small fish and increase the amount of feed per fish and thus increase the size of the bass,so has asked me and a fishing buddy to please---eat them!! Well, its a tough job, but somebody has to do it! As a result of this windfall i am looking for bass recipes. I have an old favorite that i used to due with stripers--stuffed with rice and olives---but i figured this crew would have some killer recipes---so---how about it--got any favorite bass recipesI'd love to try them out!

        Sugar Fried Bass from Sugar Ferris, founder of Bassin'Gal:

        1 small jar prepared mustard
        1 small bottle Tabasco
        6 tsp salt
        1 egg
        1/2 cup milk
        4 Tbs soy sauce
        1 bass filet per person

        Blend all the ingredients except the bass in a large container. Slice the fillets into finger-size pieces and place in the marinade. Remove the fish and roll in yellow corn meal. Deep fry until golden brown. Drain fish on paper towels and taste to see if salt is needed.


        Baked Bass Fillets, from Jerry McKinnis of The Fishin' Hole:

        Cover bottom of a Pyrex dish with bacon strips and butter. Place he bass fillets on top of the bacon and drop some more chunks of butter on the fish. Salt the fish and top with a little catsup. Slice some tomatoes, green peppers and onions and place these over the fish. Cover lightly with honey and bake for 45 minutes. You can also do this by placing everything in an aluminum foil package and tossing the package into a campfire to cook.

        Buttermilk Bass, from John Weiss:

        3 cups buttermilk
        pancake mix
        2 pounds of bass fillets
        cooking oil
        Place the fillets in a bowl and cover with buttermilk. Let stand for one hour. Place pancake mix in a brown paper bag. Remove the fillets from the buttermilk and shake off excess milk. Place them, two at a time in the bag and shake the bag till the fillets are well coated. place the fillets in a hot skillet containing 1/2-inch of cooking oil and fry till golden brown, and crispy around the edges. Drain on absorbent toweling.

                Take a quarter to half pound of butter, place bass and butter in baking dish. Bake until done.
                Or:
                Coat the bass in kosher salt until totally sealed. Bake until done.
                These recipes are easy but goood.

                  Fish Fishburne? Fish is the only guy I've ever seen do a standing jump from the ground onto to the deck of his trailered bass boat. I fished with him at a Bassmaster Classic back in the late '80s.

                    I just put some flour on a paper plate, sprinkle it with salt,pepper and paprika, mix it together, and press the bass fillets into it to coat them on both sides.

                    Then I heat a deep frying pan with about an inch of vegetable oil in it and fry the fillets for a couple of minutes until golden brown. Then I flip them with tongs and fry about a minute more until the other side is the same. Remove and drain on paper towels. Serve with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice or tartar sauce.

                    This makes a very light breading that lets the flavor of fish come through.

                          Place fish on large piece of foil. salt and pepper it. Liberally douse with olive oil. Place on top of it slices of vidalia onion and preferably native tomatoes. wrap sides of foil up and crimp top to seal. place on preheated outdoor grill and grill for 15 minutes or so until thermometer place in center of fish reads 150 degrees. deelish. best in summer with real tomatoes.

                              Sounds like you need to read, or have already read, James Lee Burke's In the Electric Mist With Confederate Dead. Now, that will get you into some strange-thinking pathways!
