Ingredients

For the Mushroom Ragout:
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped shallots
2 cups sliced mushrooms
8 plum tomatoes, quartered and skinned
2 sprigs tarragon, or 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper

For the Sautéed Sea Bass:
8 black or striped sea bass fillets, 4 to 5 ounces each
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil


For the Mushroom Ragout:


1. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until they begin to soften, about 2 minutes.


2. Turn the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms and sauté 2 minutes more.


3. Add the tomatoes, tarragon, salt and pepper. Heat thoroughly. If using canned tomatoes, simmer for 30 minutes to reduce the acidic taste.


4. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste. (This can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.)


For the Sautéed Sea Bass:


1. Generously season the fillets with salt and pepper.


2. Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a pan large enough to accommodate all the fillets.


3. Sear the fillets for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, turning only once. (Thin fillets will take less time, thicker fillets more.)


4. Serve the fish with the mushroom ragout spooned over and around the fis
