About Chilean Sea Bass

Caught primarily off Chile and the African coast, these fish can grow to over 30 pounds. Fish between ten and twenty pounds are brought to market, and are normally sold in steak form, or fillets. Rarely seen even ten years ago, this fish has gained in popularity due to the unique flavor and forgiving texture that allows even the least attentive cook to turn out a remarkable meal.

Rich in flavor, moist and "buttery", this fish is excellent grilled. It has a large flake, and takes longer to cook than most fish. Fully cooked, the flakes are apparent. Juicy and full flavored, this fish needs little more than salt and pepper. Far surpassing local delicacies, this foreign arrival is a treat not to be missed.
