And that is how these two little Black Bass bros from Asbury Park came to reside in our Staub. M. roasted them with Meyer lemon, garlic, and lashings of New Jersey hothouse Italian parsley and arugula for 25 minutes at 400F.

Served with orange-cumin carrots, tee-tiny potatoes, and caprese with housemade mootzarel from Emily’s Pork Store and hothouse Jersey cherry tomatoes.
