Redfish Creole

"The Creole Cafe steamed with onion vapour, garlic mists tomato
fogs and green-pepper sprays. I cooked and sweated among the
cloying odours and loved being there. Finally I had the authority
I had always longed for."

~ Maya Angelou, in "Gather Together in My Name"

La Belle Cuisine


The following recipe is not entirely new to these pages. Some time ago,
we decided to remove it for whatever reason. Perhaps something like,
"Everyone already knows how to make Redfish Creole. Or anything
Creole, for that matter. Just make a good Creole Sauce..."
It occurs to us that this kind of thinking is probably very shortsighted.
Chances are that most folds would like to make a good Creole Sauce,
but not everyone knows how. So. We shall begin with the following
recipe and go from there...

Redfish Creole
Bon Appetit October 1980

Bon Appetit - One Year Subscription 

6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter
1 cup thinly sliced onion
3 cups chopped green pepper
3 cups chopped celery
1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
Salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cups peeled and seeded
chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 tablespoons capers, drained
Hot pepper sauce
1 3/4 pounds redfish fillets,
cut into serving pieces

Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until wilted. Add the green pepper, celery, garlic, salt and pepper and sauté
briefly. Blend in tomato, parsley, capers and hot pepper sauce to taste.
Cover and cook 15 minutes. Uncover and cook 5 minutes.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Butter large baking dish. Arrange fillets
in dish and cover with sauce. Bake until fish flakes when fork-tested,
about 15 minutes. Serves 4 to 6.

As a lagniappe, if you will, we offer you a rerun of a delicious New
Orleans restaurant Creole Sauce. In case it looks familiar to you,
chances are you have seen it accompanying
Mr. B's Louisiana Crab Cakes.
