Fresh tomato salsa isn't just for chips-try this version on fish.

The Problem

When grilled at home, this popular fish can easily taste too fishy -- nothing like the mild yet rich-flavored fillets served in your favorite restaurant.

The Goal

Firm, delicious Chilean sea bass fillets with crisp, seared exteriors, cooked at home on the backyard grill.

The Solution

Choose fillets of even, 1 1/4-inch thickness, and treat them unlike any other fish -- grill them thoroughly, until the entire fillet is opaque and fully cooked.
