OK, so I understand that the name of the dish is Sea Bass with Parsnips, however… well… I did not use either ingredient. Unable to find Sea Bass at a local seafood market it was decided that instead, the dish would consist of Bream (yum!). As for the parsnips. I just plain don’t like them!
The fish is pan-fried, with olive oil, and the parsnips (or potato in my case) are boiled with sliced onions and then puréed with pouring cream and nutmeg. Additionally, a gremolata (flat-leaf parsley, French shallot, and lemon zest) is sprinkled over the top.
Nothing special with the fish, although it did taste very nice; the puréed potato’s with pouring cream and nutmeg, on the other hand, was a little different (from standard mash potato).
In summary, an excellent, tender bit of fish with some soft, creamy potato. Can’t go wrong with that!
I am not looking forward to tomorrow night. Oysters…
