  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet set over high heat. When the oil is almost smoking, add the sea bass and sear quickly on both sides until nicely browned. Remove to a plate. Drain off all but about 2 teaspoons of the fat in the pan, set it over medium heat and add the garlic, ginger and jalapeno. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
  2. Whisk together the gin, soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, fish stock, veal glaze and bell pepper and pour into the pan. Bring to a simmer and add the fish. Cover, adjust heat so that the mixture just simmers and cook, turning once, until the fish is just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer fish to a serving plate and pour the sauce from the pan over it. Garnish with cilantro and serve.
