Fish Two O'clock Bayou

"White fish fillets cooked with stock on a bed of chopped vegetables. From the Prudhomme Family Cookbook. Although Paul Prudhomme insists that only fresh fish be used in this recipe, I have had good results using frozen fish. Any white fish can be used. If you don't have seafood stock, substitute chicken or vegetable stock. Serve this over cooked rice."

  • Combine the salt, cayenne and black pepper. Take a rounded 1/2 teaspoon and sprinkle it over both sides of the fish. Let stand 1/2 hour. Reserve remaining salt and pepper mixture.
  • Heat the butter in a large skillet over high heat until it is half melted. Add onions, celery, bell peppers and the remaining salt and pepper mixture. Cook about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the flour and 1/2 cup of the stock and stir until well blended. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid is almost evaporated, stirring frequently.
  • Stir in remaining stock. Add fish in a single layer and sprinkle green onions over the top. Cover and cook just until fish is cooked, about 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

    Great fish. No fish stock but chicken stock worked just fine. I used a mixture of red and green peppers which gave the sauce a beautiful reddish tint. Thanks.

    Delish...used telapia, not our favorite but I had it in the freezer. DH was sopping up the sauce with plain white bread! Ouch! Okay, he's a country boy! No wonder Breezer and other chefs gave this the heads up for best of 2010! I put this keeper in my best of file. Thaks Chocolati!

    5+ Stars! I absolutely loved this. I used fresh tilapia, but I think this would be even more fabulous with fresh red snapper or grouper. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. Made for PRMR tag.
