I was in the mood for fish so I looked in the freezer and I luckily had some of my favorite in there – now I just had to figure out what Chilean sea bass recipe to make for my dinner. There are so many possibilities. I considered what else I had in the yurt and came up with what turned out to be a delicious meal.

Heat the orzo until it starts to toast and turn a golden brown. Watch it, the orzo can go from toasted to burnt very quickly.
When the orzo are toasted add 3/4s of a quart of the chicken stock and 1/4 cup of the white wine.
Cook the orzo for about 10 minutes until they are al dente. Drain any remaining liquid and set aside. Keep the pan you used to cook them ready to use again.

How Was the Chilean Sea Bass Recipe?

I guess in thinking about how to cook Chilean sea bass I went all out! This may look like a lot of steps but it really isn’t. The orzo can be me made ahead of time and just warmed up before serving, likewise the corn and edamame can be put together early if you are concerned about too much going on at once. The flavors all combine together so beautifully; the sweet corn, the earthy soybeans, the smokey bacon with the rich fish. It was a really delicious meal and it would be a wonderful celebration meal for sure.
