Asian Wedding Banquet-Style Chilean Sea Bass, I know it as Cá Đút Lò, is one of our favorite fish dishes and we look forward to having it at every Vietnamese wedding we go to. The sweet and savory, flaky and buttery, bright-colored Chilean Sea Bass is so good and addicting.
We celebrated Me and Mrs. No Limit’s 21 year dating anniversary with this luxurious fish for dinner that was quite simple to prepare and packed full of flavor. I roasted the fish in my Traeger Grill, but the toaster oven or regular oven is ideal!

- For this recipe, you want to find the thicket piece of Chilean Sea Bass Filet. I got it at Costco.
- Bigger pieces may require more roasting time. Make sure the internal temperature of the fish reaches at least 135 degrees before removing it from the oven/grill.
