One of my husband John’s favorite places to visit is Mississippi’s Circle M Plantation and fish and hunt deer and turkeys there. He enjoyed this delicious recipe the last time he visited.

Ingredients:

  • 5 pounds bass fillets
  • Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • Vegetable oil
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced green pepper
  • 1 cup diced tomato
  • Salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder
  • Juice from one lemon
  • Crumbled Feta cheese
  • Capers

Preparation:

Place bass fillets between clean towels one hour before cooking to drain off excess liquid. Dip fillets in egg and then bread crumbs, and lightly brown in vegetable oil. Place in greased baking dish. Sauté onion, green pepper and tomato in olive oil, until slightly wilted, and season mixture

with seasonings and lemon juice. Pour mixture over fillets in the baking dish, top with Feta cheese, and brown in a 500-degree oven for about 15 minutes.
