Step 1

* Note: See the "Bayou Blast - { Creole Seasoning}" recipe which is included in this collection.

For the Portuguese olive-tomato sauce: In a saucepan sauté onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and olives and continue to cook until sauce is thick and most excess liquid has evaporated, about 25 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste and serve warm with linguica crusted redfish and fried calamari.

For the fried calamari: In a mixing bowl, marinate the calamari in the buttermilk with 2 tablespoons Creole Seasoning and allow to sit for 20 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine masa harina and flour along with 2 tablespoons Creole seasoning. Dredge the calamari in the flour mixture and sift to remove any excess. Deep fry calamari until golden, 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly to prevent from sticking together. Drain on paper towels, season with creole seasoning, and serve on top of redfish along with Portuguese olive-tomato sauce. Garnish with feta cheese.

For the linguica crusted redfish: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a skillet, cook linguica over medium heat until most fat has rendered. Add bread crumbs and mix well. Set aside.

Season redfish on both sides with Creole Seasoning.

In 1 large or 2 small skillets heat olive oil until very hot and sear redfish for about 3 minutes, or until you have a nice golden color. Turn fillets over and carefully remove any excess fat from the skillet.

Divide linguica mixture between fillets and bake for 5 minutes. Remove and serve immediately with Portuguese olive-tomato sauce.
