Lake Como's Sea Bass Delizioso

Price per serving for two: $2.25

You will need to go to your local fish monger or fish counter at your local grocer and buy a nice sea bass. If you don't like bass, any white fish will work. The side can be pine nut risotto or perhaps a salad. Pine nuts tend to be expensive so you can substitute with chopped walnuts.

Whatever fish you use, it has to be firm and fresh. I saute the bass fillets in olive oil and coconut oil and a bit of creamy butter; as you know, I add my seasoning is sea salt, red pepper flakes, crushed coriander, garlic powder and dried rosemary to the oils and then add my meat or fish in the case.

Once the fillets have browned on both sides on med heat, add a few drops of dry vermouth and turn the heat to high to let the alcohol sizzle out/ Then 1/4 cup of heavy cream, cover and simmer on low so you start your risotto. Boil rice in salted water. When tender, drain and add a dollop of butter and 3 tbs of mashed sun dried tomatoes and stir in some grated parmesan, top with nuts

A squeeze of fresh lemon and you are ready to serve ~ Bellissimo!
