The Fish Friday Foodies are roasting their fish/seafood today........
I am hosting our group this month and invited them to share recipes for fish and seafood that is roasted.  Now that the weather is cooling off for many of us it is time to return from the deck and the grill to the kitchen and the oven.  

Here are some great recipes to get you started........
Are you a blogger interested in joining Fish Friday Foodies?  We meet together on the Third Friday of each month to share a fish/seafood recipe based on a theme or ingredient chosen by one of our members.  We would love to have you join in the fun.  Pop me an email at and I will send you an invitation to our group.  

Roasted Chilean Sea Bass Skillet

I had found a package of  Wild Line Caught Chilean Sea Bass in the frozen section at Costco.  I love Chilean Sea Bass but have not eaten it in years because of ecological concerns.  The sea bass had been overfished and was no longer considered sustainable.  But now, this fish, which is really a Pantagonian Toothfish, is approved by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch and back in the stores. 

Since September is designated as National Organic Month I wanted to make sure my dish was made with the very best ingredients that are earth friendly and sustainable.  I used locally grown vegetables from the Farmer's Market and while many of these farmer's are not certified as organic, they do practice organic and sustainable farming techniques.  

I also opened a bottle of Cono Sur Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy with this dinner.  Cono Sur is also from Chile and they are inviting us to #pourorganic with them. They sent me a sample of two of their organic wines, a Sauvignon Blanc and a Chardonnay, for testing purposes with my #WinePW group.  I received no monetary compensation and all opinions are strictly my own.  You can read more about the #pourorganic movement in this post.

I find that there is truth in what grows together goes together, but I did wish I had opened the Chardonnay instead of the Sauv Blanc.  This recipe I am sharing is very rich and buttery tasting.  I think a heavier wine would have been better suited. That being said....the sauv blanc was a delightfully bright and acidic wine that we still enjoyed.  There was nary a drop left in the bottle after dinner.
