Happiness is a Plateful of Melt in Your Mouth Chilean Miso Sea Bass

Posted: Jul 23 2017

You’re not going to find Chilean sea bass on the menu at Red Lobster or Long John Silver’s. Instead, you’re more likely to find it in the toniest restaurants, featured in a lineup that includes filet mignon and lobster risotto. The meaty, white-fleshed fish is a favorite among seafood devotees for its buttery, melt-in-your-mouth flavor, and low calorie, low cholesterol, high protein and omega-3 fatty acid content.

Chilean sea bass is the fish equivalent to the chicken breast. In addition to its sinfully fabulous taste, its naturally high-fat content keeps it moist during cooking, which gives it a rich, moist, tender flavor profile. It makes a great meal by itself, or you can use the meat in any one of your favorite dishes—everything from fish tacos to salads.

Fish for Sushi just launched its Wild Chilean Miso Sea Bass, marinated in miso to bring the tender fish to life with exceptional flavor. Choose from two cuts: center meat only or trim cut. The miso marinade gives the fish a light sweetness while keeping it moist. Our Chilean miso sea bass pairs perfectly with rice.

Chilean miso sea bass can be prepared a number of ways, from broiling to baking, grilling and pan-searing, poaching, and even smoking. It also rates extremely high in nutrients. Calorie for calorie, Chilean sea bass packs a dense punch of vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients, making it a very healthy food choice for yourself and your family.

The name "Chilean sea bass" originates from the Chilean waters in which it was first commercially harvested. Now, however, sea bass is also caught in cold, deep waters near New Zealand and South Africa, as well as assorted remote territorial islands and the international waters of the southern latitudes.

Chilean sea bass is noted for its large, thick flake and tender texture that makes it a truly exceptional eating fish. It is an excellent substitute for sablefish. In Japan, where both fish are highly esteemed, it's often known as mero. The international fleet currently harvesting and processing Chilean sea bass at sea is among the most high-tech in the world, ensuring consistent quality.

Fish for Sushi’s wild-caught Chilean Miso Sea Bass is harvested through sustainable methods, deep frozen within hours of catch, and delivered to your door with all the rich flavor of freshly-caught fish sealed in.
