Recipe: Alex Lee


  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Four 5-ounce skinless striped bass fillets (about 1 inch thick)
  • Stir-Fried Asparagus


Step 1    

In a bowl, combine the scallions, ginger, garlic and red pepper. In a saucepan, heat the oil until shimmering. Pour the hot oil over the scallion mixture and stir in the lemon juice, soy sauce and salt.

Step 2    

Preheat the broiler. Brush the fillets on both sides with some of the scallion oil. Arrange on a broiler pan skinned side down; broil until just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Transfer the fillets to plates; spoon some scallion oil on top. Serve with some stir-fried asparagus.
