      Title: Pan-roasted sea bass with wild mushrooms *jb
 Categories: Seafood, Main dish
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      2 tb Olive oil
      2 lb Assorted fresh mushrooms,
           -such as white, shiitake,
           -oyster or chanerelle
           -large mushrooms quartered
      5 tb Cold unsalted butter, 2
           -tablespoons cut into pieces
           Salt and freshly ground
           -pepper
      3 md Leeks, white and tender
           -green, finely chopped
    1/2 c  Chicken stock or canned
           -low-sodium broth
      2 tb Vegetable oil
      4    Sea (6-ounce) bass fillets
           -with skin, about 1-1/2 in.
           -thick
    1/4 c  Finely chopped fresh
           -flat-leaf parsley
 
  You need thick, firm-fleshed fish fillets to take the heat of
  pan-roasting; sea bass is ideal because the skin crisps up so nicely
  in the hot pan. Tilefish makes a good alternative.
  
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet until almost smoking. Add the
  mushrooms and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, for 2
  minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the butter, reduce the heat to low
  and cook until the mushrooms are browned and the pan is dry, about 7
  minutes. Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a saucepan.
  
  2. Melt 2 more tablespoons of the butter in the skillet. Add the
  leeks, cover and cook over low heat, stirring a few times, until
  tender, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and add to the
  mushrooms along with the chicken stock; simmer for 3 minutes. Season
  with salt and pepper.
  
  3. Preheat the oven to 450 B0. In a large, heavy-bottomed ovenproof
  skillet, heat the vegetable oil until almost smoking. Season the fish
  with salt and pepper and add to the skillet, skin side down. Shake
  the skillet to loosen the fillets and cook over high heat until the
  skin is browned and crisp, about 5 minutes. Turn the fillets,
  transfer the skillet to the oven and roast for about 4 minutes, or
  until the fish is just cooked through.
  
  4. Stir the butter pieces and chopped parsley into the mushroom-leek
  sauce. Divide the sauce among 4 large plates and set the bass fillets
  on top. Serve at once.
