How to Cook Butter and Wine Braised Sea Bream

  1. Lay the sea bream on a wooden board. Superficially score it around 0.4 inches (1 cm).
  2. Pour a small drizzle of olive oil (around 1 tablespoon) over the fish and generously rub it with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. Heat the remaining olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Lay the fish and flip it when it turns golden. Add the cherry tomatoes, asparagus, green chili, and thyme.
