Redfish on the half shell

Postby egghead » Sat Oct 09, 2010 9:05 pm

A friend brought me some redfish on the half shell, filleted redfish, filleted bass and some backstrap.

Most of the ingredients
Image

made two pans of butter sauce - 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
Image

Grilling the romaine
Image

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

Redfish - meat side down first
Image

Three filets with the mojo butter sauce and lime slices
Image

Two filets with just butter garlic
Image

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

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

Don - I actually like this one a little more. I use it as a dipping sauce for mojo marinated pork - I think you will like it

Mojo Dipping Sauce:
8 cloves garlic, chopped
2 serrano chiles, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves
Salt
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Using a mortar and pestle, mash the garlic, serrano, cilantro and a few pinches of salt until it becomes a paste. Add the orange juice, lime juice and oil and stir to combine.

Great looking stuff EH. I haven't done any redfish on the halfshell in awhile. Need to get some more. I'm hoping to get some spearfishing in soon though so maybe I can get some grouper or something for the egg.

Good luck with it Kenny
