White Bass Recipe Suggestions?
My wife has informed me that if my boys and I plan on fishing Utah Lake as much this summer as last, I need to start bringing them home... I just don't want to mess with cleaning and preparing them if I can't make them taste good.

Does anyone have a favorite recipe or preparation method for white bass that they are willing to share?

Thanks in advance!

This is very close to Tube Dudes Pig Out Chowder but with a few differences......

WHITE BASS CHOWDER

Ingredients
3 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon garlic powder
˝ package of Betty Crocker Garlic Mashed Potatoes
2 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
2 pounds of fish
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 (15 ounce) can creamed corn
1/2 pound Cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup of bacon bits (depends on how much bacon you like)

Directions
1. Melt butter in a large pot on Medium heat. Sauté onion, celery, and garlic powder until the onions are tender.
2. Stir in broth, salt, pepper, and dill. Bring it to a boil and then reduce the heat.
3. Simmer for 10 minutes. (On the side lines mix the powdered potatoes with chicken broth in a bowl until firm and not lumpy).
4. Stir in fish, evaporated milk, creamed corn, potato mix, and cheese.
5. Cook until heated through.
6. Add bacon bits.
(I also like to add crispy onions on top while serving.)

I just dip my Filets in Milk, sprinkle a little Salt and Lemon pepper, roll them in Corn Flakes and Fry.
Simple but good.

Last year we brought a bunch home, decided to fry them up and have fish tacos. We used this recipe for the batter, I did add a little seasoning. I believe a little lemon pepper..I am not a fan of fish, and these things were good...yeah I know, anything fried taste better...We plan on doing it again this year for sure...

Some good looking recipes there.

White bass are delicious particularly when fresh! I like to come home from catching them and cook them the same day. They are so good you can fry them in some olive oil with just some lemon pepper and there great. If you don't like the oil, broil the on tin foil with a little pam spray on the tin.

All these recipes sound so amazing. The only thing I like better than hunting and fishing is cooking what I bring home. I have lots of recipes I could share but you already have so many to choose from I think I'll post my grandmas amazing tarter sauce recipe. It really ads to any fish baked fried or broiled.
1/2 T minced onion/reconstitue with 1T hot water for five minutes then drain excess water.
2 T sweet pickle relish
2 T dill pickle relish
1/8 t cayanne pepper
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t salt
1 cup mayonaise (i really enjoy the mayo made with olive oil)
Some good additions are fresh or dried parsley and a sqeeze of fresh lemon or lime.
I'm a guy who loves cocktail sauce on my fried fish but I love this even more.

If you can't find a recipe you like, then you'd be the first I know, because W bass are so mild comparatively. Unless fish just ain't your 'cup o' tea. Cool

I'm good with just putting fillets in a pan with butter and lemon and some "season all" (seasoned salt). But if you want a bit stronger flavor I really like Tony Chacere's Creole seasoning. It goes good on ANY fish IMHO. (Specially cats.)


And, this makes for a particularly good seasoning for "bass tacos." I use cabbage and "pico de gallo" (a fresh salsa). But in a pinch, regular jarred salsa will do.

Good luck with it. And I hope to have some luck this year as well! Wink

  Go to any Asian market and buy a bag of "frying mix for seafood. It makes a batter that is nice and crispy, like beer batter.

So fry up the fillets in the batter, finely shred a bit of cabbage and roll it up in some tortillas, which have been lightly toasted right on the burners of the stove.

Make some hot ranch dressing by adding a squirt of Srirachi sauce or another hot chili sauce, and top with that.

I made these, my first attempt at fish tacos, at work and the bunch liked it so much that people, all over the hospita,l I don't even know heard about it and ask me for the recipe. I think fresh fish is the answer.
