Summer is almost here. Time to break out the grills. Here is a simple but tasty Redfish dish for the grill.

4 tablespoons Olive Oil

1 tablespoon Butter

Lemon Pepper, Granulated Garlic and Creole Seasoning to taste

1 small Lemon

2 pounds Redfish fillets, skin and scales on one side

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for indirect cooking. Set a small saucepan over medium heat. Add olive oil, butter and seasonings. Squeeze in the lemon juice and stir until blended. Remove from heat and set aside. Place fish fillets, scale sides down, on the hot grill. Baste the fish with butter and seasoning mixture. Cover the grill and baste with additional sauce every 5 minutes. Cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes. Plate the fish and pour the rest of the butter mixture over and serve.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!


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.
