Striped Bass Chowder from 'The Catch'

Ben Sargent got his cooking career started by slinging chowders from a Brooklyn surf shop. So it should come as little surprise that he includes so many recipes for the seafood stew in his new cookbook, The Catch. This chowder, made with striped bass and broccoli rabe pesto, serves as a perfect bridge between quick summer meals and heartier cold-weather soups and stews. More

Plantain-Crusted Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Salsa from 'The Catch'

Mahi mahi takes well to tropical-themed preparations, such as this creative twist on fried fish from Ben Sargent's new cookbook, The Catch. Instead of breading or battering the fish, Sargent coats the mahi mahi fillets with a thin layer of crushed plantain chips. The chips make for an ultra-crisp coating on the fish, and add needed sweet richness to the lean fish. A big spoonful of pineapple and tomatillo salsa is a perfect accompaniment, adding bright freshness to the fried fillet. More

Cooking Channel's 'Hook, Line & Dinner' with Ben Sargent

Ben Sargent is the kind of friendly, unassuming guy who'd invite you to his apartment for a small dinner party after meeting you for the first time. And it's the genuine kind of invitation, not the, "Yeah I'll see you around sometimeIguessmaybe" kind. But it wouldn't be just any dinner party; it would feature homemade lobster rolls and lobster bisque. Nor would it be just any apartment, but one with ukuleles on the walls, an aquarium full of colorful fish, and a ceiling lined with surfboards. He's now the host of the seafood-centric show Hook, Line & Dinner, whose season finale airs tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET on Cooking Channel. Learn more abut his speakeasy lobster roll joint, how his show developed, and what's next for Ben. More
