Sea Bass with White Peppercorn Sauce

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at

1 tablespoon freshly ground white peppercorns
fine sea salt
2-3 sea bass fillets
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon unsalted butter
1 shallot, finely minced
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1/2 cup fish or vegetable stock
1/4 cup cream

freshly snipped green onions or chives

Lightly salt the fish, and then pat the ground peppercorns into the flesh. Heat the oil in a large heavy bottomed skillet or saute pan. Saute the fish until lightly browned on both sides. Remove from pan. Add butter to drippings and heat. Cook the shallots lightly. Add the wine and stock. Add the fish back to the pan and gently simmer to reduce the liquids by half. Whisk in the cream and reduce a bit. Correct seasonings, sprinkle with onions or chives and serve.
