Certified Steak & Seafood Company Review
Last weekend, I had my parents and my brother over for a steak and seafood feast – complete with both red and white wines, garlic mashed potatoes and and roasted asparagus. Certified Steak and Seafood Company sent over their prime filet mignon and Chilean sea bass for us to try and provide an honest review.
The package arrived in a thick styrofoam shipping container with dry ice. The filet mignon and Chilean sea bass were still perfectly frozen. We let them defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
I asked on Faceboook to all of my foodie and chef friends, how they’d prepare the sea bass. It’s not a type of fish that I cook very often, even though it’s my very favorite fish in the world. Chilean sea bass is something I normally order at a restaurant, mainly because my local supermarkets don’t sell very many of this fish. Especially for seafood, if inventory doesn’t move, it sits and spoils very fast. In short, I don’t trust my local markets to sell me the very best and freshest Chilean sea bass.
One famous cookbook author pinged me on Facebook and suggested cooking the Chilean sea bass sous vide. Perfect. Sous vide allows me to cook any foods perfectly, without ever the risk of overcooking.
We decided on Miso Sea Bass – In a small bowl, whisk together 4 tablespoons miso paste, 2 tablespoons mirin, 2 tablespoons sake. Add this miso sauce into a bag with the sea bass, threw in a knob of butter and sous vide 135F for 30 minutes. Removed sea bass, seared both sides in olive oil. Added in the miso sauce from the bag and let it simmer down until thickened.
Absolutely perfect. The sea bass held its shape during cooking, yet flaked easily when I shook my fork at it! So buttery, tender and smooth.
We finished the filet mignon with a creamy, bourbon mushroom sauce:
Sauté sliced mushrooms with a little butter. Season with salt and pepper. Pour in a shot-glass worth of bourbon. Squeeze in just little lemon and dust with a pinch of ground nutmeg. Bring to a simmer and finish with a swirl of heavy cream.
Divine. Our filet mignon was restaurant-quality that’s hand-trimmed and aged for 27 days.
