Ingredients

  • 1 ounce blended oil
  • One 6-ounce portion lionfish fillet, skin removed 
  • Kosher salt and ground white pepper
  • 1 ounce garlic, thinly shaved 
  • 1 ounce shallots, cut into brunoise 
  • 2 ounces dry white wine 
  • 1 ounce lime juice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon lime zest 
  • 3 ounces unsalted butter, chilled and cubed 
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped 

Directions

Heat a nonstick saute pan with the oil. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper. Gently place the fish into the pan and sear on high heat for 20 to 30 seconds on each side. Remove the fish and rest on a paper towel.

Add the garlic and shallots to the pan and cook until translucent, 20 seconds, then deglaze the pan with the wine and lime juice. Reduce the liquid by half, and then add the lime zest and whisk in the butter. Adjust the seasoning and finish with the cilantro.

To serve, plate the lionfish and spoon the sauce over the fish and around the plate.
