Dear SOS: My girlfriend and I had a wonderful Valentine’s dinner at La Traviata in Long Beach. The ambiance was romantic, the service and entertainment were great, but the sea bass was to die for. Can you get the recipe?

Dear John: Here it is, almost Valentine’s Day again. We got the recipe, but we substituted halibut because Chilean sea bass is so overfished. We used the restaurant’s glaze and ponzu sauce. Make it for your girlfriend at home this year. But you’re on your own for service, entertainment and ambiance.
