Cape Cod Vacation Packages are usually jam-packed with golfing, dining, and beach options. But let’s not forget what else the Cape is known for – its dynamite fishing.
Yes, Cape Cod is a fisherman’s paradise – especially if striper is your catch of choice.
Commercial striper season is in full swing on Cape Cod and that means permitted fishermen can take multiple fish on the prescribed days. Even the big-time commercial fishermen will be out on the water earning a part of their year’s income from their striper catches.
This time of year also means restaurants and local fish markets are stocking up and plating them up.
Tony Pasquale, chef/proprietor of Terra Luna in Truro, praises striper meat. “I love the sweetness of the fish. It has a great texture, and is great for grilling. It has enough flavor to stand on its own, but is versatile enough to carry the flavors of whatever you cook it in, ” he tells The Cape Cod Times.
Pasquale prefers to grill the striper, then finish in a pan with the potatoes, add some saffron and tomatoes and finish everything in a rosemary oil with just a little bit of cob-smoked bacon for flavor. Yum, yum!
