Creole cooking, while heavily influenced by French, Spanish, African and Caribbean cuisines, also adopted many Native American techniques for preparing the bountiful local produce.

Redfish Courtbouillon Recipe

Posted by on Jul 30, 2013 in Cajun Recipes, Cooking, Featured, Seafood | 0 comments

Redfish Courtbouillon Recipe

Creole cooking is not as fussy as some of the French cuisine from which it is partially descended, but that does not mean that it is unsophisticated. Redfish Courtbullion, pronounced “coo-be-yahn”, is a rich and savory dish that celebrates the freshness and delicate flavor of the fish along with the earthy, peppery tang of classic Creole sauce. Redfish is preferred for this dish, but red snapper also works well.

Baked Duck Tenders

There’s this thing about the breasts of chicken, ducks and geese: They have this little strip of meat semi-attached to the inside that you need to remove before you cook it. This is the tenderloin of the breast. What to do with it? Well, mostly I just fry it alongside the rest of the breast and eat it in the kitchen.
