Striped Bass with Clams, Black Olives, and Chorizo

Using a wealth of summer ingredients — tomatoes, fennel, oregano, and fresh clams — this one-pot dish essentially steam-braises the bass to juicy perfection. Because the chorizo and olives are savory and the clams contain natural brine, this recipe calls for no added salt.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 medium red onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup diced fennel

  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
  • 1/2 cup fruity white wine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped

  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 littleneck clams, scrubbed and rinsed
