Grilled Redfish Sandwiches with Seafood Remoulade Sauce


6 6-7 ounce Redfish Filets

1/4 cup No-Stick Grilling Marinade for Seafood (page xxx)

1 1/2 tsp Creole Seasoning

6 Hamburger Buns

1/4 cup olive oil

1 Recipe Seafood Remoulade

1 1/2 cup Green Leaf Lettuce, shredded

10-12 slices Fresh tomato

1 Recipe Tobacco Onions-


Brush the fish filets with the no-stick grilling marinade and let sit for one hour. Sprinkle the filets with the Creole Seasoning and grill over direct high heat until the center of the fish is slightly pink, about 6-8 minutes. Turn the filets once during cooking. Do not overcook.

Brush the inside surfaces of the hamburger buns with the olive oil. Grill over medium direct heat for 2-3 minutes.

To assemble the sandwiches, spread a small amount of the Seafood Remoulade the toasted surfaces of the hamburger bun. Place tobacco onions on the bottom bun, enough to cover the surface, then top with the fish, tomato, lettuce and the top half of the bun.

Serve immediately.

Yield: 6 sandwiches

Raw red onion, thinly sliced may be substituted for tobacco onions. Red snapper or grouper may be substituted for redfish.

Sweet Potato Pancakes

I ate my first sweet potato pancake during my only visit to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. My family, along with another couple and their young children rented a cabin in the mountains during spring break. I woke every morning and headed into town for breakfast. I would imagine Gatlinburg has more pancake houses per capita than any place on the planet. My problem is that I never found a good-tasting pancake until I happened across sweet potato pancakes at one of the pancake houses. We serve a version of this recipe at The Midtowner. The Cinnamon Cream Syrup is a must.

RSJ’s Smoked Yellowfin Tuna Dip

The smoked tuna dip at Harbor docks is, by far, the best in the area. Actually, it’s the best I have ever tasted. Over the years I have taken a few stabs at recreating a Harbor Dock’s version, but always come up short. After several failed attempts, and facing a cookbook deadline, I finally worked up a recipe for smoked crab dip, which is excellent, though my wife still prefers Harbor Docks smoked tuna dip.
