  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the fish for 3 mins each side or until just cooked through. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil to keep warm.

  2. Step 2

    Bring wine or stock to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook for 5-6 mins or until the liquid reduces by half. Increase heat to medium. Add cream and curry leaves and simmer, stirring, for 5 mins or until sauce thickens.

  3. Step 3

    Reduce heat to low. Add the butter, 1 piece at a time, whisking until butter melts and the mixture is well combined. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice and Geraldton wax powder or fennel. Season.

  4. Step 4

    Divide the fish between serving plates. Drizzle with some of the sauce and serve immediately.
