"As most of us know, "Chilean Sea Bass" is a fancy-pants marketing term to make Patagonian Toothfish sound more appetizing but almost all grocery stores will sell it as Sea Bass! That being said, you can replace this with Halibut or cod (for a more cost effective version)"

INGREDIENTS

1 pound Chilean sea bass or another firm white fish (such as cod, halibut, or flounder)

6 sea scallops, muscle removed

6 fingerling potatoes (gold or red; I recommend avoiding the purple ones since they seem to fall apart faster)

6 ounces sugar snap peas

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons butter, divided

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided

Sunflower microgreens (or any other microgreen or parsley), for serving

BEURRE BLANC INGREDIENTS

1/4 cup dry white wine

1/4 cup white wine vinegar

1/4 cup heavy cream

2 small shallots

6 ounces unsalted butter, chilled

10 black peppercorns

Salt and a touch of cayenne powder to taste

METHOD

Prep Ingredients: Scrub the potatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. Pat the fish filets dry and season with salt and pepper. Chill until ready to use. Pat the scallops dry and season with salt and pepper if desired and chill until ready to use. Trim the sugar snap peas and cut into thirds (or in half if small) on an angle. Trim the stems from the microgreens if desired and discard. Mince the shallots. Cut the butter into medium cubes and keep chilled.

Boil the Potatoes: Add the potatoes to a medium pot and cover with water and season with salt. Bring to a boil and cook for 15 minutes or until just under fork tender. Add the sugar snap peas and boil for 2-3 more minutes. Drain and keep warm.

Make the Beurre Blanc Sauce: In a small saucepan, add the shallots, white wine, white wine vinegar, and black peppercorns. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes or until the liquid has reduced to about 2 tablespoons. Add the heavy cream and whisk to combine. Add the butter, one or two cubes at a time, whisking with a flat sauce whisk after each addition until all the butter has been added and the sauce is thick and velvety. Season with salt, pepper, and a touch of cayenne to taste. Strain the sauce into a bowl through a fine mesh sieve and keep warm. Note: you may need to whisk the sauce to reincorporate the ingredients before serving.

Make the Fish and Scallops: Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil to a medium skillet over medium-high heat until the butter is frothy and melted. Add the fish, skin-side down, and cook for 5-7 minutes or until the skin is very crispy. Gently flip and cook for an additional 5-7 minutes or until the fish reaches 135ºF. Transfer to a plate and cover with aluminum foil to rest for 5 minutes.

While the fish is resting, heat the remaining butter and olive oil in the same skillet. Add the scallops and cook, without moving, for 1 1/2 minutes per side. Remove from heat.

To Serve: Divide potatoes and sugar snap peas between plates. Place a filet of fish on top and arrange the scallops beside the fish. Spoon the beurre blanc sauce over top and garnish with microgreens. Enjoy with the remaining white wine!

And I'd grab a buttery loaf of garlic bread off another table, while clearing the path!

You clear the way and I will follow you!!! hahahaha

I never knew that about sea bass. I live in a land of wonderful seafood, but I eat lots more shellfish than fish. In a restaurant, I'd knock over people's tables to get at this!

Donnajames

My mouth is flooded!!!! This sounds sooooooo good!!!
