Wild Alaskan Black Bass Recipe

Have you ever made a dish you loved so much, you made it all over again the next night? That’s exactly what happened with this Wild Alaskan Black Bass, baked with olive oil, green pepper, olives and cherry tomatoes.

Wild Alaskan Black Bass Recipe with Olives, Tomatoes

I added in sautéed yellow squash and the colors, flavors and textures mingled together just right to make that perfect bite.

Every month I get a box of wild Alaskan fish in collaboration with SitkaShares. If you remember, I made these fish tacos with their wild cod. It comes packed in freezer bags and dry ice to leave your fish with so it remains frozen for hours, even in the summer. They always let me know the day it is being delivered so I can make sure to be ready for it.

It’s the best fish I can get my hands on. You can even meet their fishermen. 

What does wild Alaskan black bass taste like?

Black bass are whitefish fillets that may resemble a cross between a snapper and a branzini. Their small, delicate flakes and mild flesh make them perfect for baking, roasting, or sautéing. They bake in the oven beautifully and quickly, and don’t fall apart like baked sole. That makes this fish perfect for roasting with tomatoes and olives.

I am in an instagram partnership with Sitka Shares, but under no obligation to write this blog post. I’m sharing this because I am truly just that excited about their product.

How to Defrost Frozen Fish

The fish comes packed in plastic. I simply submerge in cold water for about 15 to 20 minutes. You could place from freezer to refrigerator in the morning,  and it will be ready for you at dinner time.

How To Make Wild Alaskan Black Bass

This is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make and the payoff is big. Of course, this is healthy, but it feels much more decadent. I pat dry, salt, and place in baking dish. I cut my cherry tomatoes in half (you can keep them whole) add in tiny slivers of green or red peppers (because I had them from the farm), add olives, capers and lemon. You can skip the peppers if you desire.  Drizzle olive oil. Bake for about 17 minutes at 375 degrees F. If you want to, you can add in a large dice of yellow squash before baking. I did that the second time I made the dish. I also added fresh oregano. You can use any herbs you have on hand. I also sprinkled some red chili flakes for that little extra heat.

    Delicious!! A keeper recipe, most definitely. One suggestion—throw the baking dish into the oven with all of the ingredients except for the fish and let them bake until almost done. Then, add the fish and bake all for seventeen minutes and so good! I baked just as written in the recipe but my veggies (squash, tomatoes, peppers) were not tender. And the olives baked longer are amazing, too.

    We love Sitka Salmon Shares, I cannot say enough good things about their products and company.

    Normally they have some great recipes but none for black bass interested me. Came across this and it sounded good so I gave it a try. It was excellent!!! I’m actually making it for the second time. Thanks for sharing.

    We rarely get to eat fish since my kids have a serious aversion to it 🙂 , but this is a real treat for those occasions that allow. Those flavours are just perfect together.

  4. Your instructions stop at no. 7 …sprinkling veggies with red pepper flakes. How long in the oven? I am guessing 17 minutes as shown at the top of your recipe.
