SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Chef Roy Angelle at SOWELA Community Technical College shares his recipe for Gafftop fish and pineapple avocado relish.

Ingredients:

Gafftop fish:

  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 dried thyme
  • 1 dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • Salt to taste
  • 6 Gafftop fish fillets
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Lemon wedges for serving.

Pineapple avocado relish:

  • 1/2 a fresh pineapple
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, red or green
  • 1/2 a red bell pepper
  • 1/2 a red onion
  • 1/2 a cucumber
  • Juice of two limes
  • Large handful of cilantro
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon

Directions:

Gafftop fish:

Combine all dry ingredients and sprinkle evenly over fish, pressing to adhere.

Place sauté pan on medium heat and add oil.

Turn up heat to medium high and once oil is hot enough, place fish in pan and cook until fish releases from pan and flip.

Once cooked, remove and serve with pineapple and avocado relish.

Pineapple avocado relish:

Dice the pineapple, avocado, tomato, bell pepper, onion and cucumber into roughly the same sized pieces. Add to a large mixing bowl.

Remove the seeds (or leave them in if you like things spicy) and inner white ribs from the jalapeño pepper. Dice finely. Add to the bowl and then wash your hands immediately so capsaicin doesn't burn your eyes.

Chop the cilantro and add the juice of two limes to the mixture.

Add salt and a sprinkle of cinnamon to taste.

Let the salsa sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors combine. This goes great with pork, chicken or fish.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
