Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place garlic cloves, oil and 3 tablespoons of water in a small dish and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes or until garlic is softened. Place in a small food processor and process until smooth. Bring 4 cups of water to simmer in a medium saucepan. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onion and cook until soft. Add the rice and stir until lightly golden brown. Add the wine and cook until reduced completely. Add 1 cup of hot water and stir until absorbed. Continue adding 1 cup of water at a time until rice is just tender. Remove from the heat and add the garlic puree, cheese, parsley, salt and pepper and stir to combine. Let cool for 30 minutes. Place in a bowl, cover and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours. Shape risotto into 8 (2-inch) diameter patties. Place risotto cakes on a baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour. Place seasoned flour in a medium bowl. Lightly coat each risotto cake with flour. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a medium saute pan. Add 4 cakes at a time and saute until golden brown on both sides. Wipe out pan, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and repeat with the remaining 4 cakes. Serve 2 per person.  

For the Sea Bass: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. With a sharp knife score bass 3 times on each side to the bone. Season bass on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add bass to pan and brown it on both sides. Transfer pan to oven and cook bass for 8 to 12 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer fish to a plate. Serve with Heirloom Tomato Salad. 

For the Heirloom Tomato Salad: Sliced tomatoes and arrange them in a shallow bowl. Combine the rest of the ingredients and pour over tomatoes. Serve immediately.
