Yield: 4 servings

Bluefish, also abundant in Martha's Vineyard waters, works well in this dish, too.


  • 1 cup pesto
  • 1-1/2 cups plain breadcrumbs
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 8-ounce fillets striped bass or bluefish, skin on
  • Tomato Vinaigrette


Place pesto and breadcrumbs into two separate shallow dishes. Divide vegetable oil into two medium-size frypans over medium-high heat.

Press each portion of fish, skin side up, into pesto and then into breadcrumbs. Place fish, crumb side down, into the hot oiled frypans and sear 3 minutes.

Turn fish and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Arrange on serving plates and top with Tomato Vinaigrette.
