CHILEAN SEA BASS INSPIRED BY JURASSIC PARK

Picture for Chilean Sea Bass inspired by Jurassic Park

3,823,142 views  Fun fact: Chilean sea bass was nearly fished into extinction after its mere mention in Jurassic Park! That's actually not a very fun fact. That's kinda messed up. While still overfished, it can be acquired legally - while fetching a price of $30/lb. A delicious (and less expensive) alternative is black cod!
