I buy my Redfish from The Local Catch. Their just caught fish is available at Connecticut Farmers’ Markets – I buy Saturday mornings in Greenwich CT.
A quick marinade flavors the fish – ready to grill in minutes.
Kashmiri Ground Chiles: has a bright red color, gives you chili flavor without the extreme heat. They are a little bit sweet and a little bit fruity.
I use this spice instead of paprika!

The basket is particularly adept at cooking fish, lobster, grilled garlic bread and foods at risk of falling through the grate.
Redfish:
It has a distinct reddish hue and a firm texture, making it a great choice for many recipes. But beyond its delicious taste, redfish also offers a variety of health benefits. Hight in protein – a particularly good source of two types of omega-3s.

Ingredients

  • 2 large red bell peppers heavy for their size; roasted, peeled and seeded
  • 1 medium sweet onion such as Vidalia
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili flakes*
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (no carmel coloring)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Peel and slice onions into 1/2 inch round slices, add to a plate, brush all over with 1 1/2 t. evoo. Set grill to medium-high heat. Add onion slices and unpeeled garlic to a grill basket, place on grill.
    Cook until onions are golden, turn over and cook second side until golden. Let onions color a bit, turn with tongs until golden - remove onions and garlic to a plate.
  • Coarsely chop roasted red peppers. Peel garlic and add all ingredients -including grilled onions (except 2 T. olive oil) to the carafe if a blender.
  • Blend from low speed to high until a nice smooth puree, but with some texture. Drizzle in remaining olive oil on low speed until blended in. Taste for seasonings.

Notes

*Chili Flakes - I love Szechuan Chile flakes, moderate fruity heat, add more if you like spicy.
Roasting Red Peppers: Place peppers over a gas flame, turning air they blacken completely all over. Add to a paper bag, seal and leave to cool. Remove blackened skin. 
The Coulis tastes best when grilling onions & garlic outdoors - adds an important smoky flavor.

    We tried another one of your excellent recipes with local red snapper and dolphin (mahi) and everybody loved it and took copies of your recipe home…without doggie bags LOL!
    The leftovers made unbelievably great omelettes which is usually where our leftover seafood dinners end up. We smoke a lot of fish for dips and smoked dip with spinach or kale also works well with a splash of salsa and cheese in omelettes.
    Thank you Karen!
