Creole Sauce served on Grilled Basa Fillet

Hello Everyone!

Creole sauce is a tomato sauce or gravy made with cooking vegetables in oil and chicken stock. This sauce is a Caribbean delight, and it is also enjoyed very well in the southern part of America. Creole sauce is great for topping meats mostly seafood, for some reason it pairs really well with fish. I usually have a little sauce in the fridge just in case I need to top up a dish a notch😏😉; sauce can last up to a week when tightly stored in a refrigerator. I served my sauce with grilled Basa fillet and quinoa. Let’s just say it was a lovely dinner, yum yum yum😋 very tasty, savory, properly seasoned and delicious (I just had to say it, my favorite word 😀). This is a recipe you want to try and it is achieved under an hour.

Now let’s get to it.

  • 1 Cup of diced tomatoes
  • 4 Scallions (sliced)
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic (minced)

  • Step 1 Heat oil in sauce/saute pan on medium heat. When hot add onion, celery and green pepper and cook until soft, this should take about 5-8 minutes.

  • Step 4 To prepare fish fillet, season fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill fish in oven on 370 degree F for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. You can also pan fry your fish on both sides for 3-4 minutes each on both sides.
  • Step 5 Serve sauce on fish fillet, top with lemon slices and pair with rice, quinoa, potatoes etc.
  • Step 6 Your food is ready!!
