How to make it

  • Roast Sea Bass belly in 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove bones from Sea Bass belly.
  • Flake with hands and place in a Kitchen Aid mixing bowel.
  • Beat with patle attachment and add liquid smoke, fleur de Sel, chopped chives and onion jus to taste. (To make onion jus, simply simmer carmelized onions with sugar, white wine, butter and kosher salt for 45 minutes).
  • Beat with patel attachment until ingredients become well incorporated and the Sea Bass separates into individual, stringy fibers.
  • Pack Sea Bass mixture into 3 oz ramikens and top with warm clarified foie butter. (To make clarified foie butter, simply clarify butter over a double boiler with your foie gras scraps in it; skim the scum that rises to the top and then strain through a chinois).
  • Chill in a refrigerator for 1-3 weeks.
  • When ready to serve, throw into a 500 degree oven for 15 seconds, (to loosen fat cap), and turn out onto a rectangular serving plate.
  • Add sliced brioche, sumac, truffle oil, fleur de sel, and micro greens dressed with lemon juice to order.

    Shandy, thank you for your comments. I think people should concentrate more on technique and flavor structure than the amount of seasoning I put in to satisfy my personal taste preference. I apologize if having no measurements is inconvenient but I don't ever measure anything so any measurements I give you would be a lie. I tend to approach recipes from a technique standpoint than a "cup of this and a teaspoon of that." P.S. Please do not substitute lemon juice for sumac or your soul may be doomed by the culinary gods for eternity. ;-)

    Now is it a comflict of interest to put in amounts? Hhhmmm? We little non-cheffy people love to cook but are not as brilliant as you for putting together a recipe out of the top of our pro-cook hat. fleur de Sel. . .flower of the salt. . .sarcasm and humor is written among the words and the recipe does sound excellent. . .but I would need to make this to classify it with a fork rating . . .yes? and for those that do not know, fresh lemon juice can be put in place of sumac. . .=D

    I love Chilean Sea Bass, but I must admit this recipe is technically challenging. It seems like the kind of recipe you would find posted on the wall of a professional/restaurant kitchen, for the cooks or section chef to refer to lol It does sound absolutely mouthwatering though and the picture is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing :)

    Hey I have to look up ever fourth word on the description, not fair! This sounds really good. I love Chilean Sea BAss. Stayed in Pacific Grove at a place with a kitchen. Stopped at fresh fish market in Monterey, got a couple of beautiful steaks, cooked in butter, the best meal in 4 days.
