Cuban Style Sea Bass recipe
courtesy of Kiki Hahn
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced white onions
2 tablespoons minced garlic
4 cups seeded, chopped plum tomatoes
1 1/2 cups dry white wine
2/3 cup sliced stuffed green olives
1/4 cup drained capers
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
4 (6 ounce) fillets sea bass
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions until
soft. Stir in garlic, and saute about 1 minute. Add tomatoes, and
cook until they begin to soften. Stir in wine, olives, capers, and
red pepper flakes. Heat to a simmer.
Place sea bass into sauce. Cover, and gently simmer for 10 to 12
minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Transfer fish to a
serving plate, and keep warm.
Increase the heat, and add butter to sauce. Simmer until the sauce
thickens. Stir in cilantro. Serve sauce over fish.
