  • Pot
  • Saucepan
  • Knife
  • Chopping Tray
  • Bowl
  • Sieve
  • Spoon
  • Spatula
  • Platter


  • 14 ounces Sea Bass Fillet
  • 1 ounce Shallots (sliced)
  • 5 ounces Broccoli
  • 0.7 ounce Rocket
  • Sorrel Leaves
  • 1 ounce Butter
  • 4 ounces Vermouth
  • 1/4 cup Dry White Wine
  • 1/4 cup Fish Stock
  • 1.7 ounces Cream
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Pepper (to taste)


  • Score the skin of the fillet. Set a saucepan over heat and add olive oil to it. Meanwhile, season the fillets with salt and pepper. When the oil in the pan starts smoking, lay the fillets in the pan (skin side down). Flip it when it's golden brown from one side. Baste it using the oil in the pan.
  • Add butter to the pot over medium and let it melt. Add chopped shallots to the pot and stir until they're soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add vermouth and dry white wine to the pot. Let them reduce. Add the fish stock and let it simmer until the sauce thickens and is reduced by 1/3. Add cream, bring it to boil, and strain the sauce.
  • Add shredded sorrel and rocket leaves to the sauce and let the flavors infuse. Now, boil the broccoli in the pot for about two and a half minutes. Strain it when it gets soft.
  • Finish by placing broccoli in the middle of the plate with panfried sea bass on top. Add sorrel sauce to the plate and serve.
