  • 1 cup mixed fresh soft herbs (sage, parsley, basil, chives), coarsely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Four 4-ounce striped bass or rockfish fillets, skin off
  • 1 egg white, lightly whisked


  1. Spread the herbs and salt and pepper on a
    large platter. Brush each fillet with the egg white, then dredge in the herbs.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, sear the fillets 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until cooked through and the flesh just begins to flake.
