    Sue Lau's Note:

    Chilean Sea Bass: which is not truly Sea Bass, but who cares? It is one of the most tasty types of fish you can buy. And definitely tasty, done in the Thai style.

      This is, hands-down, the best sea bass recipe I have tried. It is also good with halibut. ( Made it twice it was so good! ) It doesn't take very long to make the marinade. While the fish was marinating, I made some sticky rice. We don't have a working grill right now, so I seared this on the stove top - about 6-8 minutes per side, basting it with the marinade while cooking. Excellent, excellent flavor. Unique and lovely. I served this with mounded rice, dotted with chili sauce, green beans with some olive oil, and the fish. Beautiful presentation. Thank you thank you thank you for this great recipe. If I could give it 6 stars, I would! Highly recommended.

      I have made this a couple of times now to great reviewers from the guests. One time I did not have the chilis and used Sriracha Chili Sauce with great results.

      Oh, my - dancing tastebuds! Mr. Omni and I adored this recipe (he with mahi mahi, myself with tofu). Served with thai fried rice and a salad of cucumber, tomatoes, red onions and mae ploy (sweet chili sauce).
