- Whole Striped Bass with Fennel and Tomato
Preheat an oven to 425°F. Generously oil the bottom of a shallow roasting pan just large enough to hold the fish.
Rinse the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Cut 3 or 4 vertical slashes to the bone in each side of the fish. Brush the outside with 1 tsp. of the olive oil. Sprinkle the outside and the cavity with salt and pepper.
Cut off the fronds from the fennel bulb and place 3 or 4 of them in the cavity. Trim off the stems from the bulb, then cut the bulb in half lengthwise and cut out the tough core portion. Using a food processor fitted with the slicing blade, slice the fennel bulb halves lengthwise paper-thin. Alternatively, cut the fennel with a sharp knife or a mandoline. Place the sliced fennel in a small bowl, add the remaining 3 tsp. olive oil and toss to coat evenly. Set aside.
Place 2 or 3 lemon slices, half of the garlic, half of the basil and half of the parsley in the fish cavity. Lay the fish in the prepared pan and arrange the remaining lemon slices on top. Scatter the reserved fennel slices and the remaining garlic slices around the fish. Drizzle the wine over the vegetables and season with salt and pepper.
Roast the fish for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and scatter the tomatoes around the fish. Continue to roast until the fish is opaque to the bone when one of the slashes in the thickest part is opened with a fork, about 10 minutes more. Remove the pan from the oven and, using 2 large spatulas, carefully transfer the fish to a large platter. Discard the lemon slices from the top.
Check the vegetables in the roasting pan to see if the fennel is tender. If it is not, heat the vegetables for a few minutes over medium heat on the stovetop. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Spoon the fennel, tomatoes and garlic around the fish. Coarsely chop the remaining parsley, then finely shred the remaining basil.
Place the platter on the table. Starting near the center of the back, use a thin-bladed knife to loosen the top fillet from the backbone. Then, using a spatula, transfer it to a warmed individual plate. (If you are dividing the fish into 3 servings, divide the fillet accordingly.) Lift out and discard the backbone, then remove and discard the contents of the cavity. Transfer the remaining fillet to a warmed plate. Scatter the basil and parsley over the vegetables, dividing them evenly among the plates. Serve immediately. Serves 2 or 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by killerbugz from I call it the Rolls When I asked my husband to replace our 30 year old Cuisinart for Christmas a couple years ago, I thought he would just go out and buy a KitchenAid or something. Well, he shocked me by presenting me with this Breville, and while I was appalled at the price he paid, I have to say I adore everything about this machine. It is easy to use, easy to clean, the adjustable slicing blade reduces the number of parts you have to store - it's awesome. Even better, though, is Breville customer service. I had a problem just after the warranty expired and they replaced the base for me with no question, backtalk, or cost - they even paid the shipping! So much better than another high end company's warranty on our coffee maker. That warranty experience definitely made me a Breville booster!Date published: 2017-01-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Nursegayle from The Best Food Processor Ever! I have owned food processors for the past 40 years and this machine is by far the best ever! It does not move around on the counter while in use. The parts are very sturdy and well made. It is easy to clean and a true workhorse. I entertain regularly and teach cooking classes and this machine makes my prep a breeze. If you are in the market for a new processor, the Breville Sous Chef is the one.Date published: 2017-01-14Rated 5 out of 5 by Birdnscrap from By Far the Best Food Processor I've Used We have had several Cuisinarts, but this is the best ever. We wanted a larger work bowl, and this has it. The processing is effortless and precise. The discs are excellent, and the storage bin is great. I love the adjustable slicing disc and the reversible shredder. Clean up is easy enough. It did bog down with super heavy pizza dough once, so I removed half the amount. It doesn't leak with liquids, either. Long after you stop worrying about the price, you will be happy you got this!Date published: 2016-12-18Rated 5 out of 5 by UltraRunner89 from Finally the perfect food processor! I'm a food blogger & with two big jobs due this week my Cuisinart (umm only 1.5 years old) died. My husband ran out and got me this one and HELLO powerful beauty!! Insanely awesome. Highly recommended. Trust me I know my kitchen appliances. You pay for what you get.Date published: 2016-10-23Rated 5 out of 5 by JenOrtiz from The BEST ever Basically, this is the best kitchen tool I have ever bought. It's essentially perfect and worth every single dime I paid. I hope it lasts forever!Date published: 2016-10-15Rated 5 out of 5 by Palmilla from Stop looking I absolutely love the Breville Sous Chef food processor. Having several food processors in boxes in the garage, I finally found one that will rid my counters of excess appliances. This food processor is amazing; fast, clean cuts, grates cheese in seconds, whips cream into butter and so much more. Although it is large, it definitely has taken a front row to most of my appliances. I am so happy with my purchase. I would suggest to look at youtube for many demonstrations of this product.Date published: 2016-01-23Rated 5 out of 5 by YouGlowGirl from I thought I knew what love was I thought I loved my old well-used KitchenAid 11-cup Food Processor, but I positively ADORE, yes - ADORE!!! - my new Breville 16-cup Sous Chef Food Processor. This Breville replaces my 15-year-old KitchenAide, and just after one use of the Breville, I know I will be having a multi-year love affair with it, as well. It chops, dices, shreds, pulverizes everything absolutely perfectly. My first foray in the kitchen with this powerhouse appliance was this past weekend, where I put it to the test while I made homemade egg rolls, homemade empanadas, and homemade lumpia. Everything came out perfectly! This Breville Food Processor joins my Breville Juicer, Breville Waffle Iron, and Breville Blender. I feel like I should now be a spokeswoman for Breville!Date published: 2016-01-21Rated 5 out of 5 by fresh from Amazed by this processor I have owned 2 Cuisinarts and a Kitchen Aid food processor, and this is the best one by far. Greater capacity, better designed disks (totally love the adjustable slicer), no leaks when processing liquids, and a larger feeding tube. The only limitation that I have noticed thus far is that contents in the smaller bowl sometimes splatter into the larger bowl. I am sold.Date published: 2015-12-27
