preparation

1.  For the sauce, put the fish stock, cream, and Noilly Prat into a medium-sized pan and boil rapidly until reduced by three-fourths to about 3/4 cup (175 ml). Keep warm.

2.  Preheat the broiler. Brush the bombano fillets on both sides with melted butter and season. Place on a lightly buttered baking pan and broil, about 4 inches (10 cm) from the heat, for 8 minutes until just cooked through.

3.  Bring the sauce reduction back to a simmer, then whisk in the chilled butter a piece at a time. Stir in the thyme Ieaves and season to taste.

4.  Lift the pieces of pompano into the center of four warmed plates. Spoon some of the sauce over the fish and the rest around the edge of the plates.
