You can place the same sauté pan in the oven, as long as it is completely metal. Sauté the linguine in sauté pan, form a round shape and sauté until golden brown on both sides, for approximately 2 minutes on each side. You can use any long pasta noodle for the noodle cake.
Sauce
Sauté the garlic and the ginger, then add the black bean sauce, lobster stock, and water and reduce by 1/4. In a hot sauté pan add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon butter and the shredded vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sauté the vegetables until they become al dente. 
Presentation
Place the sauce in a pasta bowl. Place the linguine cake on top of the sauce, then the vegetables, and finally the sea bass. Garnish the whole plate with fresh chives.
