Beer Batter for Striped Bass

This is a recipe that I have personally been using for over 30 years. It works great for most kinds of fish, some wild game, and even for some cheese curds. The measurements that I listed below is enough to fry approximately 2 pounds of striped bass.

You start with a full box of Jiffy Baking, or you can use Bisquick, add 1.5 Tbs. of garlic pepper, and 1/4 to 1/3 cup of season salt. Mix the dry ingredients. Now add room temperature beer into the dry mix while stirring, you are looking for a consistency similar to pancake batter. Dip your room temperature striped bass chunks into the batter and then fry it in your pre heated oil. You will want to fry the fish until it turns golden brown and starts to float in the hot grease. If you find that the batter is falling off the fish it means that either your striper or the beer are too cold. It is important that they are both room temperature. Once you remove the fish from the grease you will want to put the hot fish on some paper towels and then sprinkle them with salt. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my friends and family have over the years.

Baked Crabmeat Striper

Sprinkle a couple of filets of striper with garlic powder and lemon pepper. Bake the striper filets at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Once you take it out of the oven, drain the liquid from the pan.

Mix together:
1 can of crab meat, or fresh shredded crab meat
1 cup of Mayo,
1 cup of Parmesan cheese

Put this mixture on top of the baked striper filets and bake at 350 degrees for another 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with Paprika, then broil for 3-6 minutes until the top is browned.


Bacon Grilled Striper


Cut the striper filets into cube size pieces. Then take the bacon and cut the slices in half. Wrap the pieces of bacon around the cubes of striper, securing it with a toothpick. Place the newly wrapped striper onto the grill, cooking until the bacon is crisp. Warm some honey and either spread it over the grilled striper or enjoy it as a dipping sauce.


Oven Fried Striper

Using striper fillets, brush with garlic butter thoroughly. Take one sleeve of Ritz Crackers and crush them to a rough consistency and add a half stick of salted butter. Use this mixture to cover the garlic butter striper fillets. Cook at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.


Baked Striper over Rice

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. You will need to use a box of your favorite rice mixture, mix it with butter and water, and cover the bottom of a well greased cake pan with the mixture. You will then layer the Striper pieces over the rice mixture and season it with salt, pepper, butter, and garlic (or any other spices of your choosing). Wrap the pan in aluminum foil and bake for 30 to 40 min. The fish will be a firm white color when it is fully cooked. Enjoy!!

Preparing the fresh Striper:

- soak in salt water for about 30 minutes
- make a slice about half way through the thick Striper, if using thin cuts
we will place Striper around stuffing mixture.
- stuff each fish fillet with 2oz of stuffing mix. You may use multiple pieces
of fish that you can form in a circular position around fish.
- drizzle melted butter over fish, sprinkle with garlic salt, pepper and a
blackened seasoning (I prefer Bam by Emeril's)

- while fish is baking prepare a packet sauce of Hollandaise sauce.
Once fish is baked drizzle the Hollandaise sauce over the fish and serve.
