  1. Beurre rouge is a simple emulsified butter sauce that is great with fish or seafood but is very heat sensitive. We add cream to help hold it together however it is important not to bring to a boil.
  2. The Braised leeks can be prepared before the Sea Bass and kept warm covered until ready to plate.
  3. Season the cooked fish with some flaky sea salt.
