Christian’s was one of New Orleans unique restaurants. Christian’s was located in a church right off of Canal St. in the Mid-City area. With a name like Christian’s, many wonder if this is a theme restaurant. The name Christian’s came from the owner Chris Ansel. Chris is a member of the Galatoire family. He originally opened Christian’s in Metairie. When he found this church available, he moved and the rest was history. Christian’s was badly damages by Katrina. It never reopened. Another restaurant, Redemption has reopened in it’s place. This dish is one of the popular menu items.

2 10oz Redfish Fillets

½ pint Heavy Cream

¼ teaspoon Green Peppercorns

½ cup White Wine

Pinch Salt

Saute fillets in a buttered pan. Drain the fillets and keep warm. Put green peppercorns in a saute pan and add the wine. Cook until the wine is almost dry and add the cream. Reduce the cream until thick and season with salt and more green peppercorns if necessary. Spoon the sauce over the redfish and serve immediately.



I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
