1.Begin this recipe by cooking the clams. Heat a deep saucepan and add a drop of oil. Add the clams, sliced fennel and Pernod and cover with a lid. Steam until all of the clams have opened. Once opened, set aside. Discard any that remain closed
2.Drain the liquid from the pan through a sieve and then return the remaining liquid back to the pan. Heat the contents of the pan again, reducing the liquid by half
3.In another pan, heat the red wine, sugar and vinegar and bring to the boil. Add one of the shallots, cut into rings, and turn the heat off. Allow the liquor to cool
4.Chop the remaining shallots and sweat them in butter with the sliced clove of garlic until soft, add the white wine and reduce until it resembles syrup. Add the clam stock from the other pan and bring to the boil for 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the double cream and reduce by half. Once reduced, blend the mixture gently in a blender until smooth. Set aside until needed
5.Soak the cod cheeks in lightly salted water for 5 minutes. Rinse, pat dry the cheeks and place in a steamer for 5 minutes. Once cooked, put in ice cold water for a moment, dry off and cut into 1.5cm diced cubes, refrigerate until needed
6.For the sea bass, heat a frying pan and drop in a little oil. Once the pan is hot, fry the sea bass skin side down until the skin is golden, turn the fish over to cook the other side
7.Sauté the mushrooms in a pan with a little butter, oil and salt until cooked
8.While the mushrooms are cooking, in another pan, fry the spinach with a little butter for a couple of minutes. Then reheat the fish sauce and add the chopped parsley
9.To plate this sea bass recipe, ladle the fish sauce into a bowl and place the spinach in the centre. Lodge each dicing of cod cheek into the open clams. Plate the mushrooms between each clam and garnish with the onion rings. Place the sea bass fillet on top of the mound of spinach
