Roasted Striped Bass
Many countries around the Mediterranean share culinary traditions. The tomatoes and pancetta in this dish are Italian, the olives and Pernod are French, and the saffron is Turkish. This is delicious served hot in winter or at room temperature in summer. From Ina Garten's "Barefoot in Paris." (Note: Pernod is an anise-flavored liqueur that is available in most liquor stores).
