Vancouverites miso baked escolar?

busterbrown | May 15, 2009 10:08 AM

im looking to any vancouverites because i know the craze of miso baked black cod etc... in all the vancouver sushi bars and many other restaurants for that matter. i am looking for a fatty white fish to make black cod w miso. my supplier is unable to get me black cod for the time being but tells me a common substitute is escolar. i have had escolar raw in sushi form as they pawn it off here in CR as white tuna and i am not a huge fan. i prefer albacore. but it does have good oily content so my question is has anybody had a miso baked escolar or any cooked form of escolar and is it buttery and or similiar? i am rather close to Chile and have inquired about sea bass as well but the price is horrendous as well i think it is pretty endangered which isnt to appealing so escolar right now seems to be my only option.Ive tried every local Costa Rican fish and nothing works.
P.S. i can get halibut as well.........
