Catfish Mardi grass tonight!

Postby T Man » Mon Dec 02, 2013 9:32 am

I've been eyeing the redfish mardigras for a while and finally decided to commit to it. I don't have access to redfish but I have a ton of catfish in the feezer. Ill be using blue cat for this and I decided to throw some andoui in with the sauce. If the fish sucks ill add more cream and pass it off as a soup

WWDDD. What would Duck Dynasty Do?

Redfish Mardi Gras

6 (6-8 oz.) redfish filets (or substitute Red snapper)
1/2 cup melted butter divided
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
lemon pepper to taste (I go very light with this)
creole seasoning to taste
1 cup thinly sliced red onions
2 tsps. minced garlic
18-24 (21-25 count) shrimp peeled and deveined (for 16-20 count shrimp I butterfly them in half to get two pieces)
1 cup sliced mushrooms (I like button portabellas)
3/4 cup fresh sweet kennel corn (frozen fresh works great-thaw first)
3/4 cup fresh petite english peas (again-frozen fresh works best)
1 TBSP hot sauce
1/4 cup white wine
1 Lg. Lemon (2 TBSPS lemon juice plus optional finely diced Zest)
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper to taste
granulated garlic to taste
3 TBSPS cold unsalted butter cut into 6-8 pieces

To Cook:
Preheat oven to 250*F. Lightly grease a large cookie sheet with Pam cooking spray and set aside. In a large saute' pan, heat 1/4 cup of butter in olive oil over med.-high heat. Season filets with Lemon pepper and creole seasoning on both sides. Cook filets 1-2 minutes on each side turning once. When done, place on prepared cookie sheet and keep warm in oven. In same saute' pan, add remaining butter over med.-high heat. Add onions and garlic and saute' 3-4 minutes until wilted. Add shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes until pink and curled. Add mushrooms, peas, corn and hot sauce and cook 5-7 additional minutes or until warmed through, stirring occasionally. Season lightly with Creole seasoning. Add white wine and Lemon juice, bring to a low boil and reduce by 1/2. Add heavy whipping cream, return to low boil and cook until sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Adjust seasonings if necessary with salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and Creole seasoning. Remove pan from heat and add cold butter, stirring quickly to incorporate and keep butter from separating. When ready to searve, place on fillet on center of plate. Top with equal serving of Mardi Gras Cream sauce and shrimp.

Oh my goodness. This is one of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten. With the andouie I added to the sauce the catfish was almost unnecessary. Thanks swamp for posting the recipe

I made this a few times now with snapper and mahi. I love it as does everyone that has eaten it. Redfish BBQ is also delicious.
Only trust those who like big butts, for they cannot lie.
