Roasted Chilean Sea Bass with Baby Spring Asparagus

Roasted Chilean Sea Bass with Baby Spring Asparagus

Sharing is caring!

The first sign of spring for me is seeing baby asparagus at the market, bringing it home and lightly roast it.  I keep it simple with a drizzle of blood orange vinaigrette.  This spring I mixed up my normal way of enjoying it by creating this fresh Roasted Chilean Sea Bass with Baby Spring Asparagus recipe

Roasted Chilean Sea Bass with Baby Spring Asparagus

Okay!  Okay!  We know Chilean Sea Bass is one of the most politically incorrect fishes to bring into our home, let alone our mouths.  We could not help ourselves, it is so delicious, so moist, so buttery and ever so flavorful!  Sinful as it melts on your taste-buds, literally.

I coated the fillets with butter and a masala sea salt combination wrapped them in parchment paper and roasted until flaky and delicious.  During the last 10 minutes of roasting the fish, I added a bundle of asparagus that was lightly drizzled with olive oil.  Before serving I tossed the lightly roasted asparagus with a blood orange vinaigrette and sprinkled with chardonnay sea salt.

Nice recipe! Masala would be very nice with this fish. As a note, there is a certified sustainable chilean sea bass available so we can enjoy this fish (in moderation). The Seafood Watch Program has a paragraph about the fishery for concerned consumers.
