This is my favorite Meuniere sauce recipe. You saw many a different variation of this sauce paired with different fish and sometimes even steak down in New Orleans. It's a variation of the basic brown butter sauce, but done in a french/creole fashion. Very simple and delicious! You can leave out the pecans if they don't tickle your fancy, it's just as good.
- 24 ounces red fish fillets
- 1⁄4 cup cornflour
- 1⁄2 cup white flour
- 2 teaspoons creole seasoning
- 1⁄2 teaspoon white pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- kosher salt
- 2 tablespoons toasted pecan pieces
- Combine corn flower, white flour, creole seasoning, and white pepper together in a bowl or dish.
- Heat olive oil and one tablespoon butter in large frying pan on Med heat.
- Dredge red fish (can sub trout) in seasoned flour mixture, making sure to tap extra flour off before placing in hot pan. Turn heat to Med-High and let cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, lightly shaking the pan by the handle over the heat for the first minute to avoid the fish from sticking (and again when you flip over).
- Once fish is done remove and place on a plate or serving dish.
- Immediately add butter, lemon juice, parsley, Worcestershire and sprinkle of salt to hot pan. Let butter melt and the sauce start to bubble, will turn a very light brownish color. Remove pan from heat and pour the butter/meuniere sauce over fillets.
- Sprinkle fillets with toasted pecan pieces.
- Serve with rice and veggies. I like to garnish with thin lemon wedges and fresh parsley.
