A staple of classic New Orleans cuisine, Creole sauce — also known as “red gravy” — is popular all across the American south as well as in the Bahamas and the French Caribbean. You can make a full-scale original version with diced “trinity” (bell peppers, onions, celery) and lots of spices if you have the time, but this shorter method is delicious and requires less chopping and mixing.
Grouper is the most obvious choice but you can use this recipe for mahi, catfish, snapper, shrimp, even octopus.
1 clove chopped garlic or 1 tbsp garlic powder
2 tbsp Zatarain’s or Tony Cachere’s Creole seasoning (or make your own)
1 large onion, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
14 1/2 ounce can stewed tomatoes
4 eight to ten ounce grouper fillets
Preheat oven to 350ª
Saute onions, pepper and garlic in butter or EVOO
Add stewed tomatoes and creole seasoning
Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes
Spray baking pan with non-stick cooking spray
Bake grouper for 10 minutes, then add tomatoes and vegetables from saute pan and bake for an additional 10 minutes
