We celebrated with a romantic trip to Sam's Club, the grocery store and a stop by the dry cleaners. Lame, I know. Then we came home and made a fantastic meal.
Pan seared Chilean Sea Bass over a bed of sauteed greens with a fire roasted pepper sauce.
The sauce was started by fire roasting a red and a yellow bell pepper. These were charred around 500f on the mini max. The skins were sweated off in a ziploc bag, then julienne and tossed into a hot pan with some evoo, shallots, salt & pepper for a quick saute. Once the shallots were tender, I added some fish stock and simmered. When reduced, the pan contents were blended until smooth.
The fish was deboned, it was seasoned with kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and and fresh crushed thyme.
With the Mini Max still hot, I threw on my Finex skillet and seared the fish in a little bit of evoo, plated and spritzed with a little bit of fresh lemon juice.
Finished the night off with some Roses...
My Valentine was very happy. Hope you had a great day as well.
