This is a classic Italian sauce with rich, briny flavors that is the perfect thing to flavor flakey white striped bass. And it's also one of the easiest, fastest one-pot, stove top meals.

Ingredients

Puttanesca:

Potatoes:

Basic Tomato (Pomodoro) Sauce:

Directions

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until just fragrant, 1 minute. Add the anchovies, capers and olives and cook until the anchovies have begun to dissolve in the oil, about 5 minutes. Pour in the wine and the Basic Tomato Sauce and bring to a simmer. Add the fish fillets, making sure they are submerged in the sauce, and gently simmer until the fish is cooked through and the flesh is milky white and slightly flaky, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Meanwhile, cut each fingerling in half lengthwise and place in a medium bowl. Toss well with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the potatoes, cut side down, and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. Serve the potatoes alongside the puttanesca and garnish with basil and freshly ground black pepper.

Basic Tomato (Pomodoro) Sauce:

Yield: about 6 quarts sauce
  1. In a large heavy-bottomed pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  2. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant but not browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes, bring to a simmer, and cook until thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Stir in sugar, and season with salt, to taste.
  3. Let extra sauce cool completely and then seal in airtight containers. Refrigerate for up 1 week and freeze for up to 1 month.
