Favorite Ingredients Friday (Poached Sea Bass)

Good Friday to you all! Happy Mother's Day a bit early! It's time for another Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange!

Upcoming Themed Schedule

May 18- Memorial Day edition (foods to take to the beach or lake, snacks for car rides)

June 1- Freezer cooking meals (bulk meals that freeze easily)

June 15- Refreshing drinks

June 29- 4th of July edition

My recipe this week is inspired by a trip we're taking to Mexico (we leave today and are gone through Monday)! While in Mexico, we'll probably do a bit of deep sea fishing and hopefully catch some sea bass. I'm taking this recipe with us to Mexico. I hope we catch some fish!

Poached Sea Bass with Lemon Butter
Source: Food & Wine


  1. 1 quart water
  2. 2 cups dry white wine
  3. 1 large leek, split lengthwise, thinly sliced crosswise
  4. 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
  5. 1 bay leaf
  6. Eight 4 ounce sea bass or cod fillets with skin
  7. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  8. 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  9. 2 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
  10. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped chives


  1. In a stainless steel roasting pan set over 2 burners, combine the water, wine, leek, carrot and bay leaf and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes. Season the liquid with salt and pepper and add the fish fillets, skin side up. Simmer gently until the fish is just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the lemon juice, season with salt and pepper and keep warm. Drain the fish fillets on paper towels, then transfer them to warmed dinner plates. Drizzle the lemon butter over the fish, sprinkle with the chopped eggs, parsley and chives and serve at once.
