Easy Baked Chilean Sea Bass on Bed of Roasted Potatoes, Tomatoes and Onions

After enjoying the wonderful Prime Angus Filet Mignon from Certified Steak and Seafood Company, I just couldn't wait to try the Chilean Sea Bass that was also sent to me. Chilean Sea Bass, as you know is a soft, smooth fish with a rich melt-in-your-mouth flavor that's popular in restaurants across America. But did you know that Chilean Sea Bass does not necessarily come from Chile and is certainly not a sea bass? It's actually just the marketing name for the fish called Patagonian Toothfish which is not always fished in the waters of Chile, but Chileans were the first to market it so the name just stuck.

Chilean Sea Bass is not listed as endangered species however, due to its premium value, it is subject to illegal fishing which depleted the population of this fish. In addition, the longlines commonly used to catch Chilean Sea Bass hook and drown thousands of endangered albatrosses and other seabirds each year. So whenever you purchase this fish, please make sure it comes from a Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certified market. Though I didn't see any certification mark on the Chilean Sea Bass that I received, the good quality that I've seen in each fish fillet, made me believe that all the products of Certified Steak and Seafood Company came from certified sources and their Chilean Sea Bass are harvested and processed under close inspection of the National Marine Fishery Service.

To keep the flavor of the fish, I prepared it in a very simple manner. By simple I mean simply sprinkling each fillet with salt, pepper, garlic powder and cajun seasoning...and baking it for 20 minutes! To make it a complete meal, I roasted potatoes, onions and tomatoes which I also sprinkled with the same seasoning as the fish, then I simply layered the fish on top of the roasted veggies...and VOILA!  

If you're looking for a special yet simple way to cook fish, you should try this! With this recipe, you'll learn that it doesn't take a lot of ingredients to make a great meal! Salmon, Tilapia, White Sea Bass, Cod, Halibut, Mahi will also work well for this. If you don't have ready made Cajun Seasoning, just make your own by mixing together 1 tsp. salt2 tsp. garlic powder2 1/2 tsp. paprika1 tsp. pepper1 tsp. onion powder1 tsp. cayenne pepper1 1/4 tsp. oregano and 1 1/4 tsp. thyme and store the left-over in an airtight container.
