When it starts to warm up I crave all the fresh fruit salsa. If you have never tried a pineapple salsa you all are missing out! It is super easy to prepare and makes for a great staple to almost any dish. I like to meal prep mine on Sunday and have it in my refrigerator throughout the week to top my favorite dishes with it. It goes great on grilled chicken, in salads, in taco’s, or on fish.
During my work week’s I tend to focus on creating meals that only require 15 minutes. Because after a long day at work and then a long commute home, the last thing I want to do is spend a lot of time cooking and cleaning up my kitchen. One of my go to’s during the week for a quick dinner is fish. Whether that’s a salmon dish, wild caught cod, or tuna.
To be honest, this was my first time having black bass, let alone cooking it. The only reason why I had black bass was because one of my friends husbands went on a fishing trip to Alaska and came home with all the fresh fish and was kind enough to share with me some of his catchings. There is nothing better than some fresh fish!!!
So I got to experimenting and was pleasantly pleased at how well this fish turned out. It reminded me of cod, it was light and flaky and went perfectly with the pineapple salsa. Have you all had black bass before?
