Skate With Honey Black Bean Sauce

Serves 4

Level of Difficulty: Easy

4 filets 6 oz each of skate
1 tablespoon of salt
1 teaspoon of white pepper
1 jar 6 oz of black bean sauce
1 tablespoon of sesame oil
2 tablespoons of clover leaf honey
1 bunch of green onions, cleaned and chopped, the white and half the green part
1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil

preheat oven to 350 F.

Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper. Combine the black bean sauce with the honey, and sesame oil. Stir to combine. Coat a baking pan with non stick spray. Dip the fillets in the black bean, honey, sesame oil sauce. Place on pan and bake for 7 to 10 minutes until done. Turn the broiler on and caramelize the tops, watching carefully not to burn the sea bass. Remove from oven. Keep warm.

Heat the olive oil in a pan and add the onions. Remove once they are tender. Plate the fish: top each sea bass with some of the cooked onions. Serve with steamed vegetables of choice.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
