Sea Bass with Thyme-Oregano Butter

If you are looking for an impressive dish that is packed with flavor and can be ready in a short time, this dish is for you! I have developed a new love for compound butter because it is quick and easy and delivers so much flavor.

Recipe yields 4 servings

2 pounds fresh sea bass fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
Canola oil
Thyme-Oregano compound butter

4 tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 tbsp fresh thyme
1 1/2 tbsp fresh oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

To make the butter, combine all ingredients and mix well. Refrigerate until butter hardens. Season sea bass fillets with salt and pepper. Heat a skillet on high heat. Add canola when pan is hot. Slowly and carefully add the fish fillets, seasoned side down.

Cook for 3-5 minutes, depending on the size of your fillets. Remove from skillet and place on a serving dish.

Cut slices of the compound butter and place on top of the fish. Serve and enjoy!
