Sea Bass with Creamy Lemon Butter Sauce recipe

Sea bass is dredged in flour and fried before being served with a creamy lemon butter sauce in this simple recipe. You can use this recipe to prepare all sorts of fish, from white fish to oily fish, such as salmon.

Ingredients:

  • 4 x 175g sea bass fillets, skinned and boned
  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp. each sea salt and black pepper
  • 1 tsp. lemon pepper
  • 3 tbsp. clarified butter
  • 50g chilled butter
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 350ml hot milk

Directions:

  1. Combine flour, sea salt, black pepper and lemon pepper in a bowl. Reserve 4 1/2 tbsp. seasoned plain flour to one side.

  2. Pat the fish fillets dry then dredge in the seasoned flour.

  3. Melt the clarified butter in a large frying pan. Once frothy, add the fish fillets. Fry for 4 minutes on either side until browned and flaking.

  4. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, combine the chilled butter and lemon juice. Once the butter is frothy, add the reserved seasoned flour. Stir well. Keep cooking, stirring, for 3-4 minutes. Gradually whisk in the hot milk, whisking all the while, until you have a thick, smooth sauce. Serve the sauce spooned over the fish.

You can easily make this with lime juice instead of lemon juice if you like for a twist on the dish. Recipe serves 4.

Very nice, I did lemon and lime with parsley sauce.

Garnished with pimenton.
