LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

SOWELA Chef Roy Angelle and his students, Ashtin Wiseman and Savannah Deskin, share a recipe for Bronzed Red Fish with Crawfish Etouffee.

Bronzed Red Fish

Ingredients:

  • Two 8 oz. Red Fish filets
  • Blackening season
  • 1 heaping tablespoon paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 heaping teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 heaping teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano

Directions:

  • Seasoning:
    • Mix ingredients well and funnel into a shaker.
    • Seal well and store in a cool, dry place.
  • Red Fish:
    • Place a large skillet over high heat until it is very hot.
    • Melt 1 cup of butter; put about 1/3 cup of the butter in a wide, shallow bowl and set the remaining butter aside.
    • Dip redfish fillets (about 1/2-inch thickness) in the shallow bowl of melted butter to coat thoroughly and then sprinkle the fillets liberally with the seasoning blend. Season as evenly as possible.
    • Arrange the fish fillets in the skillet and drizzle each fillet about 1 teaspoon of the remaining butter. Cook the fillets uncovered until charred lightly. Turn the fillets and once again drizzle with about 1 teaspoon of butter. Cook for about two more minutes. Serve the fish hot with melted butter on the side for each guest.
