Redfish Recipes to Try This Winter

Simple Redfish Recipes to Try this Winter

If you’re going fishing in Myrtle Beach this winter, there’s a good chance you’ll be catching some redfish. This unique species is one of the most common to find in the colder months of the year and presents a fun challenge for anglers of all ages. If you do reel in a redfish or two, you can have dinner ready before you know it! Here are a few easy redfish recipes you can prepare after a long day out on the water.

Baked Redfish Fillets

This recipe from The Spruce Eats involves little more than your fish itself! Simply pick up some butter, lemons, an onion, and some basic seasonings, and you’ll have a delicious redfish meal on the table in 30 minutes. Just butter a baking dish, dry and season your fish, and bake them to an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Pair your fish with some lemon wedges or prepare (or buy) a remoulade sauce for something a bit more indulgent.

Cajun Blackened Redfish

Looking for a flavor explosion? This recipe from Allrecipes is for you. In this preparation, your fish will be coated with a mixture of cayenne pepper, black pepper, lemon-pepper seasoning, garlic powder, and salt. Once your fish are well-seasoned, slightly char them in a skillet before moving them to a baking dish. Top with Italian dressing and bake for 30 minutes.

Parmesan Panko-Encrusted Redfish

We can thank Florida Sportsman for providing this one-of-a-kind recipe! The special flavor and unique texture of this dish come from the Parmesan cheese and panko breadcrumbs used to coat the fish before frying. The fish is mouthwatering all on its own, but to elevate your dish further, prepare a tomato basil cream sauce with olive oil, tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, heavy whipping cream, and basil. The recipe also recommends pairing your fish with a side of polenta to finish your meal.

Oven-Fried Fish Sliders

If you have some time and energy to spend on prepping dinner, these oven-fried fish sliders from Florida Sportsman are more than worth it. The fish is coated in a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, flour, pepper, salt, cornstarch, beer, and egg whites before being baked for 10 minutes. Grab some buns and customize your sliders just the way you like! The recipe suggests toppings like salsa, mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, and dry mustard Tabasco sauce.
