Grilled, unscaled fillet of seabass with soft spices

Grilled, unscaled fillet of seabass with soft spices

This dish from three-star chef Guy Savoy is taken from his book, Simple French Recipes for the Home Cook, in which he revisits traditional French cuisine.
Guy Savoy’s added touch makes all the difference. However, despite his expertise, these dishes can be prepared by anyone.
To accompany this delicate fish with spicy lemon sauce, I suggest a premier cru white Burgundy combining freshness and aromatic complexity.
2005 Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte has a lovely bouquet of citrus, lime-blossom, and almond. It displays beautiful minerality on the palate, as well as hints of vanilla and butter.
