Disney Dining at Home 1
Seared Sea Bass
We love Disney dining, especially Disney Cruise Line dining. We have each wished aloud that we could have dining like that at home. On our last Walt Disney World visit, we bought Chef Mickey Treasures from the Vault & Delicious New Favorites to try to bring the experience home.
Today, we (dad and son) chose Lumiere’s Seared Sea Bass with Red Onion Marmalade, which I have had on the Disney Cruise Line and absolutely loved.
We are complete and utter novices. Here is how it went.
The recipe called for Sea Bass. Sea Bass has reportedly been over-fished and is very expensive. We chose to substitute flounder for it.
Preparation time took about a total of 45 minutes and was quite simple even for us. The onion marmalade consisted of sautéing onions and then reducing them with wine, balsamic vinegar, and brown sugar; then adding grenadine. The fish was simply seasoned with lemon, salt, and pepper and pan fried.
The Verdict: Our fish was very similar to that served on the ship. The onion marmalade is what makes this dish so tasty. The fish by itself was nothing special. We served it with seasoned potatoes as we did not have the recipes for the side dishes or fresh spinach. Obviously, our plating technique is lacking!
Does the recipe live up to the Disney Cruise Line version? Yes and No.
Yes – The marmalade over pan seared fish is tasty.
No – I personally missed the scrumptious appetizer, salad, and dessert; as well as the excellent service. I also missed having someone else clean up and a show afterwards. All we have is Daredevil on Netflix.
We will be trying and reporting on more Disney recipes in the future.
