Redfish with Green Sauce from La Riviera
Updated: Jan 4
Here is a wonderful Italian Seafood dish that was demonstrated at the 1988 Chef’s Charity for Children. Chef Fraccaro was a very talented man. He often shared the stage with his good friend Chef Chris Kerageorgiou of La Provence. They were both characters but became serious when it came to cooking. They were one of the original chefs for the Chef’s Charity.
Sauce (Makes 1 cup)
1 bunch Parsley (use leaves only)
1 bunch Green Onions or Shallots
2 cloves Garlic
1 tablespoon drained Capers
1/4 cup Olive Oil
Juice of 2 Lemons
Pinch of Oregano
Freshly ground Black Pepper
Chop the parsley, shallots, garlic and capers very finely. Put into a bowl and stir in the olive oil, lemon juice and seasoning to taste. Alternatively, if you have an electric blender, simply put all the ingredients into the goblet and blend for about 2 minutes until the parsley and shallots are finely chopped and the sauce is evenly mixed.
4 6oz pieces of Redfish (fillet)
Salt and Pepper to taste
Place into an oiled pan, add paprika on top of the fish and 1/4 cup of water. Place into the oven at 350 degrees for about 7-10 minutes, or cook to your desire. Remove and spread sauce over the top. Garnish with tomatoes and lemon wedges.
