Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Season the skin side of the filet with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in an oven-proof saute pan to medium high. When the oil is hot, add the fish, skin side down, and saute for one minute until a slight crust forms and the filet isn't sticking to the pan. Place the saute pan in the hot oven for 6 to 8 minutes until the flesh is firm and cooked through. Remove the saute pan from the oven and place it on the stove over medium-high heat. Add the butter, garlic, shallot, rosemary and thyme and baste the fish with the sauce. Remove the filet to a paper towel. Place a dollop of Preserved Lemon Dressing on a plate and place 3 to 4 Grilled Carrots on top of the dressing. Arrange the filet to the side of the carrots and garnish with the dill.
Place the ingredients in a blender and blitz until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Cook's Note: To make homemade preserved lemons, submerge 6 Meyer lemons, quartered, in a quart of salt and a quart of sugar and water for 30 days.
Peel the baby carrots and place them in a bowl. Add the salt, pepper and olive oil and toss together. Arrange the carrots on a baking sheet set over a sheet pan and broil them under a pre-heated salamander on high for 4 minutes, turning it down to low for a further 4 minutes. They are done when they are fork tender with a slight bite and have a nice roasted color.
