This recipe was very easy and darn pretty to look at! Although, with the strong flavors of the roasted red pepper sauce and broccoli puree, I think halibut would be a perfect substitute, and a lot kinder to your wallet!


Number of serving: 4

For the red pepper sauce:

2 red peppers

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 shallot, minced

3 tablespoons white wine

6 tablespoons chicken stock

Lemon juice, to taste

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the broccoli puree:

1 head broccoli, about 14 ounces

1 leek, washed and trimmed, sliced

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon butter, plus more to taste

Zest and juice of 1 lemon, to taste

For the sea bass:

4 fillets sea bass (or halibut), about 4 ounces each

Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon butter

1 tablespoon olive oil


  • For the red pepper sauce
    Preheat over to 400 degrees. Set the red peppers on a baking sheet and roast until the flesh is soft and the skin is puckered, 35-45 minutes. Remove the peppers from the oven and put them in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Set aside for 10 minutes to sweat. Remove the plastic wrap, peel and seed the peppers. Cut the flesh into pieces and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a saute pan. Add the shallot and cook until soft. Deglaze the pan with the white wine and cook 1 minute. Add the stock and the cooked red pepper. Cook for 5 minutes. Cool slightly, and puree in a blender. Season with the lemon juice, salt and pepper, then transfer to a small saucepan to reheat in a few minutes.
  • For the broccoli puree
    Bring a pot of water to a boil. Cut the florets off the broccoli stem in even sizes. Salt the pot of boiling water, add the broccoli and leek. Cook until very tender, about 10 minutes. Drain. Drop in the butter and puree with an immersion blender. Taste and adjust the salt. Add pepper, lemon juice and lemon zest, to taste. Serve the broccoli puree hot as a bed for the fish.
  • For the fish
    Season the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat the butter and oil in a skillet (non-stick works well here). Fry on both sides until golden and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.
  • To serve
    Add a spoonful of broccoli puree to the center of each plate and top it with the fish. Swirl the red pepper sauce around the plate and enjoy!
