Striped Bass

Serves 4| Hands-On Time: 30m | Total Time: 30m


3 shallots, sliced into rings

1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon capers, chopped

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

Kosher salt and black pepper

4 6-ounce pieces striped bass or halibut

2 bunches spinach (about 1 pound), trimmed


In a saucepan, over medium-low heat, simmer the shallots in ½ cup of the oil until they are light golden brown, about 12 minutes.

Transfer the shallots to a bowl and stir in the capers, vinegar, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Season the fish with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and cook until opaque, about 4 minutes per side. Divide among plates.

Wipe out the skillet and heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add the spinach, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.

Cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with the striped bass, drizzling the vinaigrette over the top.
