As a lover of all fish dishes, I was pleasantly surprised to receive this delicious Toothfish steak recipe from the folks at Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). For those of you unfamiliar with Toothfish, it's actually just a name for Chilean Seabass, the fish we were once told to take a pass on. Well guess what? They are back and better than ever. Check out this light and mouth watering sea bass dish perfect for a summer night.
