Preheat oven to 450°. Wash sea bass and pat dry. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a oven safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add Grapeseed oil. When oil is heated reduce heat to medium and add sea bass. Sear 3 minutes per side, until golden in color. Transfer skillet to oven to cook through.
Meanwhile melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add shallot and garlic and sautee until tender. Add white wine and heavy cream and cook until slightly thickened.
Remove sea bass from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. If need be, this is the time to remove the pin bones. It is much easier to remove them after the fish has cooked than before.
Plate Sea Bass and spoon garlic herb sauce over the fish. Serve with your side of choice.
This is a very delicious way to prepare sea bass and will impress any guests. The recipe is decadent and rich, yet healthy and understated, and will work for all occasions. I have chosen to serve the fish as a main course with a bed of quinoa super grains and a garden salad.
