Back in December I was asked by Certified Steak & Seafood* to sample and review both their Prime Angus Filet Mignon and Chilean Sea Bass. At the time it arrived I immediately used the steaks to make Steak au Poivre but I popped the Sea Bass filets into the freezer to make another day. When the Certified Steak & Seafood Prime Angus Filet Mignon and Chilean Sea Bass steaks arrived at my door they were individually vacuum sealed, frozen and packed in a styrofoam cooler with dry ice so it was easy to just pop all the individual steaks into the freezer.
After enjoying the wonderful filet Mignon we couldn’t wait to try the Sea Bass and it didn’t disappoint. I chose to prepare the Sea Bass simply as I didn’t want to overpower the delicate flavor if the fish. Maisie especially loved the fish and ate almost a full filet herself. The Sea Bass was delicate, sweet and totally delicious. Maisie has requested a repeat meal so we’ll be enjoying this recipe again very soon.

Remove the Sea Bass steaks from the freezer and defrost overnight in the refrigerator. Once defrosted remove from the packaging and pat dry with paper towels.
Preheat oven to 350F. Lay a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil on a baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking spray. Place the Sea Bass filets on the foil and evenly sprinkle on the garlic, ginger, sesame oil, Mirin, salt, pepper, green onion and sesame seeds. Close foil to make a packet and put in oven for 15-20 minutes. The fish is done when it begins to flake. Remove from foil and serve immediately.
