Chilean Sea Bass over Roasted Jalapeno-Potato Puree

Chilean Sea Bass is a very flaky and tender fish, and is definitely one of my favorites. It is not difficult to prepare and has a rich flavor like no other fish. Interestingly, the name "Chilean Sea Bass" is a name originally invented to market the fish to the American buyer. It is, in reality, also known as the Patagonian toothfish, which doesn't sound quite as appetizing. We pan seared ours and served it over a wonderfully spicy and flavorful puree consisting of roasted jalapeno peppers and potatoes.
