Striped bass is high in Omega-3 fatty acids, which are known to aid heart and brain health. It’s also high in lean protein, vitamins B and D, and minerals, all of which help build strong bones and muscles and are necessary for cell regeneration, making it an excellent complement to a balanced diet.
The striped bass is regarded as royalty in the Atlantic. Striped bass fillets, which have a special place in Montauk’s history (and hearts), hold up well to a variety of treatments, one of which is poached with a topping of fresh tomatoes, basil, and garlic. Light fruity wines, such as Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc, go well with this dish.
