  1. Set oven to 325 degrees. In a pan, sear the striped bass for 2 minutes with the skin side down. Transfer the entire pan to the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and put aside while preparing the ragout.
  2. In a separate pan, add diced onion, carrots, and celery. Saute for one to two minutes and then add chopped bell pepper and zucchini.

  4. For the charred tomatoes: In a casserole or glass dish, add tomatoes, olive oil, salt and pepper. Heat in microwave for 5 minutes.
  5. Once tomatoes have charred and blistered, smash.
  6. Serve the fish skin side up over tomato pesto ragout and top fish with smashed tomatoes.
