If you've ever had a piece of really great Chilean Sea Bass - you know how great it is. If you've never tried it - well, you're missing out and you really need to taste it. It is by far one of my favorite fish to eat.
Like most fish - the preparation of Sea Bass is simple. Lightly seasoned and pan sauteed is really the best method that I've found for this flaky fish. Place it on top of a bed of Marsala mushroom onion confiit and you've got yourself a gourmet Sea Bass dinner.
I made this Sea Bass for Ben on Valentine's Day. We wanted to have a special dinner but we didn't want to go out to an overly crowded restaurant. Chilean Sea Bass was the perfect meal. It's a little bit pricey so I don't buy it often - just for special occasions - but we both love it.
If you've never tried Chilean Sea Bass before - this is a great - simple recipe to get you started. Try it and I think you'll be "hooked." (See what I did there?)
