  1. To prepare the Beurre Blanc, combine 1/2 cup wine, the shallot and bay leaf in a saucepan and reduce until almost dry. Add the cream, then whisk in the butter; set aside and keep warm. Combine the saffron, water and the remaining 2 tablespoons wine in a saucepan; boil until reduced by half. Pour into the beurre blanc, whisk, then strain through a chinois or fine mesh sieve. Keep the sauce warm.
  2. The Vinaigrette: Mix the olive oil with the vinegar and set aside.
  3. The Spinach: Melt the butter in a saucepan; add the pine nuts and raisins and cook until the butter browns. Add the spinach, salt and pepper and saute until wilted. Transfer to a warm plate.
  4. The Fish: Preheat the broiler. Season the flesh-side of the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a nonstick skillet. Add the fish and saute over medium heat until crisp. Turn and cook for 30 seconds longer. Transfer to a heat-proof platter.
  5. Melt the butter in a small skillet. Add the chopped pine nuts and breadcrumbs, and cook until foaming. Spoon over the fish. Broil until golden brown.
  6. To Serve: Arrange the fish on the spinach. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the saffron beurre blanc over each fillet, then spoon 2 tablespoons of the vinaigrette around and on the Beurre Blanc, and over the fish, if you like.
