Roasted Bass with Bacon


Wrapping in fish in bacon will infuse it with smoky flavor and keep it nice and juicy during cooking. In this recipe, the fish are first seasoned with salt, paprika, dried oregano, and fresh parsley and then sprinkled with white wine. Once wrapped, they are drizzled with some olive oil and roasted until the fish is opaque throughout and the bacon is crispy (but it won't get too crispy, thanks to the fish).
