Kosher salt and ground white pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon cottonseed or canola oil

Season pompano with salt and white pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add pompano, skin side up; cook until lightly browned and skin has crisped, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add green onion and garlic; sauté until onion is softened. Increase heat to medium-high. Add wine and lemon juice; sauté for 2 minutes. Add crabmeat and parsley; sauté for 1 minute. Season to taste with salt and white pepper. Spoon over pompano fillets. Serve with French bread. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
