Simply Incredible Chilean Sea Bass

Chilean sea bass is the lobster of fish — succulent and delicious — but with a huge difference: While lobster is kinda finicky when you cook it, taking to some methods and making others taste like you've never cooked before, Chilean sea bass became so popular in part because the creamy, buttery taste holds up well to almost any kind of preparation. Like Cajun? It'll take a blackening with losing its jenes se qua. Prefer to grill? Baste and burn it to your heart's delight. But to fully appreciate the flavor of this "most wonderful fish," we prefer to keep it simple: A light sauté with a drizzle of balsamic on a bed of sautéed veggies. Feeling a little more inventive? Try swapping out your go-to balsamic with something a bit more adventurous like blood-orange balsamic or our Peruvian Gold sauce. You'll thank us later.

           INGREDIENTS

            METHOD

3/4 cup, room temperature, divided balsamic vinegar

4 6-oz Chilean sea bass fillets

 Freshly ground black pepper and salt, to taste

 2 tablespoons olive oil

 4 cups vegetables such as baby carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, sugar snap peas

Cut vegetables into batons (1/8" strips)

Rinse the fish in cold water and drain.

Season fish with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add fish and sauté each side for 3 to 5 minutes, depending upon thickness of fish. When the flesh is opaque, it's done.

Transfer fish to a tray and drizzle each fillet with 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar.

Add vegetables to skillet and toss with remaining balsamic vinegar and arrange them on each plate.

 Place each fillet on top of vegetables. Sprinkle with pistachios and parsley.
