Ingredients

  • 1 tsp anchovy paste
  • ½ inch rounds
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • 3-4 Japanese eggplant (1 small regular), cut into
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (about ½ lemon)
  • 1 6oz jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped parsley
  • ½ red onion, quartered and sliced
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¾ lb striped bass filet, skin-on olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 445°F.In a large rimmed baking dish, combine the eggplant, onion, and artichoke hearts with a glug of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt
  2. Toss until fully coated, and then shake the pan to make sure the vegetables lie flat and have the maximum possible surface area exposed
  3. Roast in the oven for 20 minutes
  4. With a spatula, redistribute the vegetables so they brown on the opposite side, and return to the oven for another 10-20 minutes, until the vegetables are dark brown and caramelized
  5. In the meantime, make the salsa verde: Combine the capers, herbs, anchovy paste, lemon juice, oil and salt in a small bowl and whisk until fully incorporated.Coat a large skillet with olive oil and set it over high heat
  6. Pat the fish fillet dry and when the pan starts to smoke, set it flesh-side down in the hot oil
  7. Cook until the fish flesh has turned opaque half way through, then flip the fish and cook skin-side down
  8. Cook time depends on the thickness of the fish
  9. If you have a very thick filet, finish in a 400 degree oven for a few minutes, or return the flame to low and cover the pan for a few minutes
  10. Set fish fillet on a platter or between two plates
  11. Drizzle the top with a spoonful of salsa verde
  12. When the vegetables have finished roasting, toss them together with the remaining salsa
  13. Top the fish with the vegetable mixture and garnish with some chopped chives.
