Miso-Glazed Chilean Sea Bass

My favorite fish of all time is the chilean sea bass. Does that mean I eat it often? No. Why? Because it's a bazillion dollars usually. At restaurants, you typically have to pay a hefty price tag for an itty bitty piece. Even at Whole Foods, it's an arm and a leg for a pound. Lucky for me (and other sea bass lovers out there), Whole Foods was having a sale for $10 off! While I still paid about $27 for almost a pound, it was the only chance I could buy it and experiment with that beauty of a fish.

While any sea bass is tasty to me, I particularly love it Japanese style miso-glazed. I really didn't want to f*ck up such an expensive piece of protein so I kept the recipe light and simple.
