Method Prep:20min › Cook:25min › Ready in:45min
Preheat an oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Season the sea bass with salt and pepper; arrange in a baking dish and set aside.
Melt the butter with the olive oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook the shallots, garlic and parsley in the melted butter and olive oil until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the flour and stir continually until completely incorporated into the mixture and the liquid is smooth. Pour the cream into the mixture whilst stirring; cook and stir until thickened. Season with the white pepper. Gently fold the prawns tails and crab meat into the mixture, taking care to not break the crab meat too much; cook another 1 minute. Spoon the mixture over the sea bass fillets.
Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
