  • 2 cups sodium free chicken stock 2 cups sodium free chicken stock
  • 0.25 cup white wine 1/4 cup white wine
  • 2 cups peas 2 cups thawed frozen peas
  • 0.25 cup flat-leaf parsley 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 garlic 1 garlic clove
  • 0.5 tsp salt 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 0.5 tsp ground pepper 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 375ᵒ.

  2. To make the soup, warm the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté until tender, about 7 minutes. Add the lemon zest and juice, wine and broth and bring to a simmer, cover, and keep warm over low heat.

  3. To make the puree, combine the peas, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in a food processor and puree. With the machine running, add the extra virgin olive in a steady drizzle. Transfer the pea puree to a small bowl and stir in the Parmesan. Set aside.

  4. Meanwhile, place the fish on a parchment lined roasting dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake to 10 to 12 minutes, depending of the thickness of the fillets.

  5. Stir the lemon soup and divide among 4 bowls. Place a large spoonful of pea puree in the center of each bowl. Place the Sea Bass atop the mound of puree and serve right the way. Drizzle a bit more soup over the fish.
