    Redfish Coo-Be-Yon

    Ingredients:

      Creole Sauce:
      (note: don’t skimp on this, for it is the essence of the recipe)
    • ¼ Cup Flour
    • ¼ Cup Bacon Grease
    • 2 Cups Chopped Onions
    • ½ Cup Chopped Green Onions
    • 2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
    • 1 Cup Chopped Green Bell Pepper
    • 1 Cup Chopped Celery and some Leaves
    • 1 teaspoon Thyme
    • 2 Bay Leaves
    • 3 teaspoons Salt
    • ½ teaspoon Pepper
    • 6 ounces Tomato Paste
    • 1 16-Ounce Can of Tomatoes and Liquid
    • 8 Ounces Tomato Sauce
    • 1 teaspoon Tabasco
    • ½ Cup Chopped Parsley
    • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
    • Fish:
      (note: I modify the recipe. The original calls for baking whole fish with head and tail, makes pretty presentation, just not as practical as serving "ettouffe" style).
    • 6-Pound Redfish or Red Snapper, Filleted, Cut into Large Cubes
    • 40 Medium Shrimp, Raw and Peeled
    • 1 stick Butter
    • Creole Sauce (see recipe above)
    • 2 teaspoons Grated Lemon Rind
    • 6 Cups Cooked Rice

    Directions:

      Creole Sauce:
    • In a large skillet or Dutch oven, make a dark brown roux of flour and bacon grease.
    • Add onions, green onions, green pepper, garlic, celery and leaves, thyme, bay leaves, salt, and pepper; sauté uncovered over medium flame until onions are transparent and soft, about 30 minutes.
    • Add tomato paste; sauté for 3 additional minutes.
    • Add diced tomatoes with liquid and tomato sauce; simmer very slowly, partially covered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
    • Add Tabasco, parsley, and lemon juice; stir, cover, and remove from heat.
    • It’s best to let sauce set for several hours or overnight. Makes about 4 cups.
    • Remove bay leaf before serving. Freezes well.
    • Fish:
    • Bake the fish in butter and Creole sauce in oven at 350 degrees until firm.
    • Add shrimp and cook until shrimp turns pink. Add lemon rind.
    • Prepare a bed of rice and serve court bouillon over rice.
