Pepper powder
Olive oil or Vegetable oil

Ingredients to make the red wine butter sauce:

1/2 liter Nine Hills Cabernet Sauvignon
Few sprigs of thyme
1 bay leaf
A pinch of Sugar for taste
1 tsp mustard sauce
2 Tbsp Unsalted butter
Thyme and coriander leaves, to garnish
Reduced balsamic vinegar, to garnish


Directions:

Marinate the fish with some table salt, pepper powder and olive oil.
Add a tablespoon of oil to a pan. Allow it to heat.
After a few seconds, Place the fillet in the pan.
Make sure you fry the fish on both the sides.
Keep aside and make the sauce in a heavy bottom pan.
Add ½ liter Nine Hills Cabernet Sauvignon to the pan.
Add bay leaf, thyme, mustard sauce. Keep on low heat and stir occasionally. Add sugar while you do so.
Once the sauce starts to thicken, add butter to the sauce and whisk it.
Let it simmer and remove from the stove once the aroma fills the room. Now Place the pan fried fish on a plate. Slowly pour the Red Wine Sauce all over the fish fillets.
