    Ido quite a bit of fish and have had good luck with Chef Pruddohme's blackened redfish seasoning.marinate in Italian dressing for 15-20 minutes not any longer as the acid will start to cook the fish.Egg at 350 oil your grill,4 min a side depending on thickness.Sqeeze lemon over the top when done and serve with Red beans and rice.

    When I do redfish on the half shell, I cook direct on a raised grid with a dome temp around 375. Depending on how spicy you want your filets, any good rub will do. I like John Henry’s pecan hot on mine and it doesn’t overpower the fish. I do not add any smoking wood because my folks like the natural fish flavor not overpowered by smoke. Cook skin side down till flaky and enjoy. Wish I could have been with you when you caught the fish. Reds are fun to catch and great to eat. Good luck.

    Frank does his the way I do mine for the most part. I coat the fish with Chef Pauls Blackened redfish seasoning. I use just a little Olive oil in the skillet and get it hot hot. Put the fish in for about 3 minutes per side depending on thickness of the filet. Serve hot off the skillet. It will smoke up a storm if you are doing it right. :laugh:

    Forgot to mention the best meat on a red is in the throat. Cut those out and throw them on the grill ;)
