Chilean sea bass recipe wanted

Does anyone have a good recipe for Chilean sea bass?

For those not familiar - these are large white flesh fish but lacking any strong flavor. They are often sold/served in pieces roughly the size of a beef filet mignon.

  • if you have oriental steaming baskets and a wok you can do my steamed thing. .. .its fantastic. .. basically in the cold wok put 3 parts sweet sherry to 1 part soy sauce. .. run cold water all over your steamer baskets (keeps them from burning in your egg). . . lay a bed of spinach leaves in each basket. .. put the fish pieces on the spinach leaves. . .lays some finely sliced slivers of ginger and scallion on top of each piece of fish. . .put the top on the baskets. .. fire up a load of lump. .. . set the baskets in the cold wok and set the wok in the egg over the hot fire. ...close the dome ... check it after about 10 minutes. . .if the liquid is evaporating in the wok, add some more sherry to the wok. . . should take about 15 to 20 minutes for the fish to be completely done .. . serve the fish with the spinach in big shallow bowls with some of the sherry/soy sauce 'broth' from the wok over it ...fantastic. . .one of the best things i've ever made. .. .

    Does it have to be an All-Clad skillet?


    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Thanks, Max!

    I think you might recall that my spouse is Chinese - this recipe is similar to some she uses regularly.

  • Some people love it with a ragout of Spotted Owl. Just kidding. Chilean Sea Bass ( Patagonian Tooth Fish) has been overfished to the critical stage. While the texture is superb, I stopped using it or ordering it out several years ago. Please pick a fish from a more stable population. Thanks! Janet
