Ingredients Needed for Pan-Fried Sea Bass With White Wine Sauce
½ cup flour
1 pound sea bass, fillet
2 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, chopped
¼ cup white wine
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh parsley

How to Cook Pan-Fried Sea Bass With White Wine Sauce
- Add the flour to a small tray, season with salt and pepper and mix. Coat the sea bass on both sides with flour mixture.
- Melt 1 1/2 tablespoon butter in a skillet over low heat, also adding the olive oil in the process. Fry the sea bass on both sides until golden brown. Set aside on a paper towel to absorb some of the oil.
- Use the same olive oil and melted butter for preparing the sauce. Add the garlic and stir for 1 minute or so. Add the white wine, lemon juice, and fresh parsley, season with salt and pepper, and cook and stir for 1 minute more. Coat the remaining butter with flour and add it to the skillet. Cook and stir until it melts or for 1 minute.
- Serve the fish drizzled with sauce and garnished with thyme sprigs and lemon wedges.
