We tend to think of seasonal ingredients as the good stuff that we patiently wait for all year as it slowly rises from the soil and that is certainly true, but a summer staple I look forward to all year comes from the ocean—I’m talking about striped bass.

Yield: 4 servings

Bluefish, also abundant in Martha's Vineyard waters, works well in this dish, too.

Ingredients
1 cup pesto
1-1/2 cups plain breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
4 8-ounce fillets striped bass or bluefish, skin on

Directions
Place pesto and breadcrumbs into two separate shallow dishes. Divide vegetable oil into two medium-size frying pans over medium-high heat. Press each portion of fish, skin side up, into pesto and then into breadcrumbs. Place fish, crumb side down, into the hot oiled frying pans and sear 3 minutes.

Turn fish and cook 4 to 5 minutes. Arrange on serving plates and top with Tomato Vinaigrette.

Tomato Vinaigrette
4 medium tomatoes, cut into half-inch chunks
1 small red onion, diced
3 scallions, finely sliced
6 fresh basil leaves, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup white balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Combine all recipe ingredients in a non-aluminum bowl and let stand, covered, at room temperature 30 minutes.

If you think about the term "shrimp scampi," you may assume that "scampi" is the technique by which shrimp is prepared, but in actuality scampi is plural for scampo, the term for shrimp in Italian. In this recipe I give you my shrimp scampi, or shrimp-shrimp, with an east-west twist.

Ingredients
1 pound pappardelle
1 tablespoon minced lemongrass (white part only)
4 shallots, sliced
1 tablespoon minced garlic
12 large shrimp, U-15, peeled, deveined
Juice of 3 lemons

2 tablespoons butter
Canola or grapeseed oil for cooking
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions
Fill a stockpot 1/3 full with water and bring to a boil over high heat. When boiling, add salt. Add pappardelle and cook until al dente.

Drain pappardelle and set aside. In same stockpot over medium heat, coat lightly with oil and sautê the lemongrass, shallots and garlic for 1 minute, then season.

Add the shrimp and sautê until cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Add lemon juice, fish sauce and pasta and toss to combine. Check for flavor and season, if necessary. Add the shrimp and sautê until cooked through, about 3-5 minutes. Add lemon juice, fish sauce and pasta and toss Add butter, toss to melt, taste and serve.

Some of China’s smallest treasures are also its tastiest — dim sum — those savory little dumplings filled with meat, seafood, and vegetables. And they translate well to Western cuisine because they make great hors d’oeuvres. Today, however, we serve up a vegetarian soup version in my Asian Pistou Dumplings in Lime Broth. Let’s get cooking.

Yield: 10 dumplings

Ingredients
1 bunch scallions, sliced thinly, white and green separated
4 cups vegetarian broth
Juice of 2 limes
1 tablespoon Wanjashan low-sodium tamari
1/2 cup packed parsley
1/2 cup packed Thai basil
4 cloves garlic
1/2 cup edamame
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
10-12 thin wonton wrappers
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions
In a saucepot coated lightly with extra virgin olive oil, sweat the scallion whites and add broth. Reduce by 25%. Season and add lime juice and tamari. Meanwhile, using mortar and pestle, blend with a pinch of salt the parsley, basil, and garlic.

Fold in edamame and extra virgin olive oil and check for seasoning. Alternatively, using a food processor, pulse together salt, parsley, basil and garlic. Remove mixture to a bowl and fold in edamame and whisk in olive oil.

Make wontons with Asian pistou filling. Boil in broth and serve.

Garnish with scallions greens.

bacon pineapple fried orzo

Creamy garlic sauce makes a perfect complement to asparagus, leeks, and spinach. This simple reduction of garlic in a pan of milk creates a sauce that is surprisingly mild but unmistakenly garlic. Spoon over your favorite steamed vegetables, chicken, or fish.

Ingredients
2 heads of garlic
Pint of milk
4 bay leaves
1 tablespoon olive oil
Kosher salt to taste

Directions
Pour a pint of milk into a 2-quart sauce pan.

Add two heads of peeled garlic cloves, four bay leaves, and a pinch of salt.

Bring it all to boil.

Then cook slowly for 30 minutes gradually reducing the contents of the pot to one cup.

Then pour and scrape everything into a wire sieve. Set over a bowl.

Remove the bay leaves and press and scrape the soft garlic making sure you get every bit of the creamy puree into the bowl.

Whisk the sauce until smooth and then whisk in one tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of salt to taste.
