6 Minute Meal: Autograph Brasserie's Signature Pan-Seared Sea Bass with Creamed Spinach

The Meal: Autograph Brasserie's Signature Pan-Seared Sea Bass with Creamed Spinach


1 pc seabass, 7oz
2 cups fresh spinach
1 Tablespoon butter
cup heavy cream
2 Tablespoon whole grain mustard
red pepper, charred, seeded, and peeled

Chef Tip: You can do it on the flame or just buy it in the jar if you want to save time. If you don't like roasted pepper, you can substitute roasted fennel, beets, artichokes, whatever you like

6 mussels, steamed and out of the shell (optional)
Salt and pepper

Chef Tip: Use fresh cracked pepper

Cooking Oil

The Process:

Heat a little bit of oil in a sauté pan
Season the sea bass liberally with salt & pepper
once the pan is hot, add your sea bass

Chef Tip: The pan should be really hot but not so hot that the oil catches fire. The chef says a lot of people think that's fancy but it will just burn the oil.

Cook the fish until it's golden brown on one side

Chef Tip: This will take only about 1 minute

Flip it and finish in oven at 450-degrees

Chef Tip: This will take about 2 minutes. You'll know it's done when you press on the fish and get just a little bit of give. If it feels like jelly inside, it's not done yet.

In another sauté pan, melt butter and add spinach, stirring until wilted.
Add cream and reduce by 1/3rd

Chef Tip: You don't want so much cream that it's soupy but you also need enough to make it creamy

Add mustard and pepper and season with salt & pepper

Toss to coat with cream and heat
Add already steamed mussels if desired

Chef Tip: If adding mussels, hold them until the very end. If you add too soon, they'll get chewy
Chef Tip: Always taste and add more salt if needed

Plate creamed spinach with mussels
Top with sea bass & serve
