Sea Bass with Lemon and Herbs

Standard

Simple and tasty!

Ingredients:

4 (5 oz) skin on sea bass fillets

1/4 t. pepper

1 t. salt

1 lemon, cut into wedges

3 T. olive oil

2 T. white wine

2 T. butter

2 T. chopped parsley

Directions:

Score the skin of the fish with a sharp knife (this prevents the fish from curling).

Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper and let sit for about 20 minutes.

Heat a large pan. Add the lemons, cut sides down, and cook until lightly charred. Add the olive oil and place the fillets, skin side down, in the skillet. Cook, undisturbed, until the skin begins to brown and the fish is almost fully opaque.

When the fillets appear to be about 90% cooked, turn them over (the fillets should release easily from the pan). Finish cooking. Transfer the fillets and lemon to a place. Wipe the skillet clean.

Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the wine, some salt, and the butter. Mix continuously to emulsify. Spoon the sauce over the fillets and sprinkle with parsley. Serve with the lemon wedges.
