Redfish on the half shell two ways

A friend brought me some redfish on the half shell, redfish filets, bass filets, and some backstrap. :)

Most of the ingredients

Made two butter sauces - one pan had a stick of butter with just garlic, the other pan was a mojo sauce with butter, garlic, oregano, zest and juice of an orange, zest and juice of a lime, jalapeno slices, and some chopped green onion.

Basted the filets

Some romaine and cherry tomatoes with EVOO & Tony Chacheres

Grilling the romaine

Four pieces of sugar cane for smoke - lump just on front half of XL

Redfish - meat side down first

Three filets with the mojo butter sauce and lime slices

Two filets with just butter garlic

The two with just butter garlic get grated asiago, parmesean, and romano

Real good - would do both again but favorite was mojo butter sauce

    Sure looks good to me! Love redfish - not easy to come by unless one has friends. Looks as though you have a very good friend! ;)
  • I want some of that. Did you cook all on a hot open grill?
  • Sure do - used to bring a bunch home but went back to work after my 401k became a 104k :laugh:

    Blackened filets from 23 redfish at the 2008 Eggtoberfest - that was fun.

    Great post. I love redfish, but it's hard to get here in Oklahoma. Everyone needs a fried that will bring them fresh fish every now and then.

    Any road will take you there if you don't know where you're going.

    That mojo sounds great. Now if I could only catch a few reds. Specs and flounder seem to be the catch of the day around here.
  • Looks great Frank. You certainly didn't lose any of your creative cooking skills while in Norway.

  • It looks like a great dinner, Frank.

    I tasted your blackened redfish at Eggtoberfest 2008, and I still remember how great it was. Also, you were wearing the purple and yellow, and had your table all decked out in those colors too.

  • looks great ... did you only grillthe outside of the romaine? drizzle with italian dressing?
  • You have a good memory :)
  • Just EVOO and Tony Chachere's and grilled - outside only.
