I was in a seafood market that I frequent. I saw this fish that had never heard of. it was reasonably priced and the description said, tastes just like Chilean Seabass. I bought some for my husband, a little over a half pound. I baked it and he had it, it was delicious. The day after he had a horrible digestive reaction, I won't go into detail, but he was ready to go to the hospital! He went online and found an article that said a fish called escolar has caused the exact symptoms he experianced in other people. The article also gave alot of other info like escolar is banned in many countries, you are only supposed to eat 6 oz and always grill it to remove the excess oil. I thought I'd let you know and see if anyone else has had escolar.
