Seared Sea Bass with Lemon-Olive White Beans

4 (6-oz.) sustainable skinless sea bass fillets
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
5 garlic cloves, sliced
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered (about 1/2 cup)
2/3 cup unsalted chicken stock
1 (15-oz.) can unsalted cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
5 ounces fresh baby spinach

1 ounce pitted Castelvetrano olives, quartered (about 1/3 cup)

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high. Sprinkle fish with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add 1 tablespoon oil to skillet; swirl to coat. Add fish; cook to desired degree of doneness, about 3 minutes on each side for medium. Remove fish from pan; discard drippings. (Do not wipe skillet clean.) Lightly tent fish with foil to keep warm.

Stir in thyme and tomatoes; cook, stirring often until heated through, about 1 minute. Add stock and beans; bring to a simmer. Add spinach in batches, and cook, tossing gently, until spinach is wilted after each addition. Stir in lemon juice, olives, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Divide bean mixture among 4 shallow bowls; nestle 1 fillet into each bowl.
