1/2 cup wine vinegar
1/2 cup Chablis
1 shallot (peeled and chopped)

Chilean Sea Bass Ingredients:

2 lbs. of Chilean sea bass filet (remove skin and bones, cut into quarters)
2 cups julienned leeks
2 large potatoes (peeled, sliced thin and roasted)
2 tbsp. soybean or peanut oil
1 cup cooked green vegetables


Combine all of the sauce ingredients, except the butter, and reduce by 3/4. Add 1/2 lb. of butter. Cook on high until frothy. Add the remaining butter (1/2 lb.) and cook on high until frothy and expanding. Strain and add lime juice. Salt and pepper to taste.
