As fellow blogger Ayngelina pointed out in the comments below, Chilean Sea Bass is apparently in the non-sustainable fish list, and has been removed from most responsible restaurant menus and supermarket seafood departments. We don’t want to remove this great recipe provided by Sean Park, Executive Chef at O-Ku in Charleston, but try replacing the sea bass with a similar fish such as black cod (a.k.a sablefish), halibut or snapper. If you have a great recipe for exotic cuisine that you’d like to contribute, send it to us at GreenGlobalTravel@gmail.com.
