    Wing-Man's Note:

    One of the best entrees on the menu at Pappadeaux's is "Blackened Opelousas". They use catfish now, but I would recommend red snapper or amberjack. Anyway this is similar and maybe better than their sauce.

      This is very close to Pappadeaux's recipe. I added lemon juice, cooking wine and a few minced garlic cloves as the Cajun place's description of the dish is lemon, butter and garlic sauce. YUMMY! I have made it in Illinois, Michigan and now California for various family members and all love it and want the recipe. Roux mix is not so easy to find everywhere so I make it from scratch with flour and butter when I have too. Thanks for sharing.
