I love the ease of oven roasting fish fillets, so I developed this recipe when my favorite supermarket seafood department had beautiful pink steelhead trout fillets. The simply prepared fillets are topped with a roasted corn and tomato remoulade sauce, making this a dish worthy of company.
I’ve paired this sauce with salmon, but it is wonderful with all types of fish and is also great with fried catfish, crab cakes, and pan-seared scallops. You’ll have leftover sauce, so toss it with some boiled, peeled shrimp and serve on a bed of lettuce for a delicious salad.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place fish on the baking sheet, skin side down, and sprinkle to taste with the Cajun seasoning. Bake at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Remove from baking sheet, slipping a metal spatula between the skin and flesh of the fish, leaving the skin behind. Place on individual dinner plates and top with 1/4 cup of the remoulade sauce.
Makes 4 servings.
Note: Leftover sauce can be kept in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
*Grouper, mahi mahi, or other firm-fleshed fish can be used in place of the salmon
