Tropical Striped Bass with Fruit Salsa


  • 2 pounds striped bass fillets, skinless, cut into serving-size pieces
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon spicy rum
  • ½ teaspoon lime zest
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Prepare ingredients for both fish and salsa before cooking either.

In a small bowl, combine oil, garlic, ginger, lime juice, rum, lime zest, salt, pepper and parsley.

Marinate fish in mixture for 20 minutes. Place the rack in the top third of the oven and heat the broiler. Place on a sheet pan lined with non-stick foil. Broil until done, about 6 to 8 minutes, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Top with warm salsa.
