Chilean sea bass is white fish rich in the omega-3 unsaturated oils, with a unique large-flake texture, but the fish is quite mild in flavor. The oils also make it a little easier to cook, because it won't toughen up if a little overcooked.

Chilean sea bass is a deep water fish also known as toothfish, and it is caught in ocean waters around Antarctica. Most Chilean sea bass is managed responsibly, but there are still some areas where it is overfished. If unsure, ask the seller if they know whether or not the fish was legally caught.
