  • 3 TBS unsalted butter
  • 5 large shallots, thinly sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 10 ozs white mushrooms, trimmed and quartered
  • 4 6-oz skin-on striped bass fillets (about 1" thick)

  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • chopped fresh parsley or chives


Servings 4


Step 1

1. Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and thyme and cook until the shallots are translucent about 7 minutes; season with salt/pepper. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until brown and tender, about 8 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, season the fish with salt/pepper. Heat the oil in another large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish,, skin side down and cook until the skin is crisp, 3-4 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add the wine to the skillet and scrape up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Boil over high heat until syrupy, 2-3 minutes. Add the cream and simmer to thicken slightly, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt/pepper.

3. Pour the cream sauce over the mushrooms in the skillet, then add the fish, skin-side up. Simmer until the fish is just firm and translucent, 5-7 minutes. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
