Sea bass

Fried fish


Place the mussel broth with the buttermilk in a pot and bring to a boil. Then, add the rest of the ingredients and combine using a beamer.

Spread a generous amount of lemon thyme butter on the sea bass fillet and season with salt and pepper. Heat a non-stick pan until very hot. Cook the fillet on the skin while keeping the meat rare. Cut the fish into thin slices like tataki.

Cut the baby lettuce in half and grill on a griddle pan.

Allow them to cool before placing in a vacuum-sealed bag with a little of the kombu water and a piece of the kombu seaweed.

Seal and steam for 10 minutes.

Brown the butter until it becomes beurre noisette, then immediately combine with the lemon thyme. Set aside to cool.

Place the lettuce in a plate. Place the fish on the lettuce and dress with the sauce, the caviar and dill.
