Celebratory Sea Bass Baked on a Bed of Soft-braised Potato and Fennel with sublime orange sauce

It was the day of the funeral of a treasured brother-in-law – a funeral we couldn’t attend due to lockdown restraints. So the right thing to do seemed to be to celebrate his life. To have the very best meal we could make, bring out the best wine, and reminisce.

This was what we had for the main course. It did its job so well that we repeat it whenever something special is called for. The secret of its sublimity is the orange mayonnaise sauce.

If there is any leftover (some hope) mix the sauce and the fish together to make a pasta sauce. If it’s too stiff for a sauce, add some cream to loosen.
