How to make the truffle sauce

  • Place truffles and red wine in a pot. Bring to boil and then turn down to a simmer. Cook until the red wine has reduce by 2/3 then add the chicken stock and a pinch of salt. Reduce the chicken stock by half and then pour into a vitamix and puree for 1 minute and then add the butter. Adjust the seasoning with salt and a splash of vinegar if need be, set aside for later.

How to make the carrot puree

  • In a medium saucepan add oil, butter, and carrots, with a fair amount of salt distributed evenly on the carrots.  You want to have the heat on medium-low because you don't want to get any color on the carrots.  Place a lid on top and shake the pot every few minutes to move the vegetables around.  
    The salt will leach the water out of the carrots and the vegetables will cook in their own juices. Cook for 20 minutes and then check it if the carrots are tender all the way through. Cook for another 5 minutes if they aren’t tender.   Then place into a food processor or vitamix and puree until silky smooth (optional to add a touch of cream).  Adjust seasoning if need be with salt and pepper.

For the green onions

  • This is cooked the same way as the carrots. In a medium saucepan add oil, butter, and green onions, with a fair amount of salt distributed evenly through the green onions.  You want to have the heat on medium-low because you don't want to get any color on the onions.  
    Place a lid on top and shake the pot every few minutes to move the vegetables around.  The salt will leach the water out of the onions and they will cook in their own juices. Cook for 20 minutes and then check it if the onions are tender and sweet. If you need a few more minutes to cook then do so. Check the seasoning and keep warm.

To Finish

  • In a saute pan on medium high heat add oil.  Season bass with salt on both sides and place fillet side down in the pan.  Cook for 5 minutes on that side.  Then flip over for 1 minute and turn off the pan. Place a spoonful of the carrot puree down on the plate. Add the sweated green onions on top of the puree. Add the sea bass next to the onions. Add a generous spoonful or two of the sauce. Finish with some upland cress, serve and enjoy!
