Father's Day at Bonefish Grill for Chef Paul Prudhomme's Creole-Style Redfish

Bonefish Grill always feels like a celebration! I have loved working with them through the years. so I had the idea of checking out the New Orleans Creole Blackened Redfish recipes by Paul Prudhomme, one of my favorites, and sharing my own thoughts and opinions with you! I'm sharing my full scoop with you here.

Bonefish Grill for Father's Day Creole Blackened Redfish would give Dad the special treatment! Let us tell you all the reasons you'll be glad you did! See the Bonefish Grill free gift cards offer at the end of the post! :)

For us, it's a family affair! Dad's love to share time together and have great food! :)





The seasonal specials available through June 19th . . . make your Father's Day plans now! You'll be thrilled! We arrived for an early lunch which was my Birthday lunch! It was ideal! We love the casual yet upscale atmosphere at Bonefish! 


The fresh fish experts at Bonefish Grill are spicing up summer with their new Creole-Style Redfish. Melding tastes from around the world for over the last 300 years, New Orleans creole cuisine is gaining popularity across America. As a leading tastemaker, Bonefish Grill is ratcheting this old world cooking up to new world tastes.
Redfish itself is a new type of fish on the polished casual favorite’s menu. The mild sweet fish with a medium firm texture was introduced in the 1980s in the New Orleans kitchen of famed Chef Paul Prudhomme. Bonefish Grill’s Creole-Style Redfish is topped with crawfish — a fresh water crustacean similar in taste to lobster and very popular in the South — then accented with a creole-style sauce and served with sweet corn spoonbread.
This dish took me back to New Orleans! 
Here is our Redfish dish! We are crazy for the Bonefish Garlic Mashed Potatoes so they were our side of choice with the incredible Blackened Redfish and Creole Crawfish sauce! 

Bonefish Grill is spanning the globe of culinary inspiration for other items on its new seasonal menu, including:
·         Crab Cake Topped Wood-Grilled Atlantic Cobia – for a new twist, Bonefish Grill creates a delicious combination of flavors, pairing a popular starter with an interesting fish offering a rich, sweet flavor that is slightly firm, with a light flake. Served with a jalapeño bacon cream sauce it is finished with jalapeño slices and served with jasmine rice and French green beans.
Because this New Orleans girl loves her Red Fish, and Bonefish Grill wants their customers happy, they let me substitute Redfish with their Crab Cake! Heaven indeed! It was an incredibly delicious pairing! I love their steamed broccoli and potatoes au gratin to round out the meal! By the way, the jalapeño was the perfect seasoning. Truly just an accompaniment. 


·         Fresh Maryland Soft Shell Crabs - a delicacy only available a few weeks of the year, the Soft Shell Crab is sautéed crispy, stuffed with a Maryland-style crab cake and served with choice of two fresh sides.
·          Cedar Plank Norwegian Salmon –Sourced fresh from Norway, this Atlantic Salmon family is higher in fat content, Omega 3 fatty acid and has a velvety texture. Roasted on a western red cedar plank from the Pacific Northwest it is topped with a fresh, light citrus, honey-based glaze and served with a vegetable medley of asparagus, spring peas, pearl onions and button mushrooms.
·         Kate's Wild North Atlantic Haddock –This nostalgic favorite of loyal Bonefish Grill guests features this mildly sweet, wild white fish — cut in-house — garlic crumb dusted, wood-grilled, topped with feta and a lemon basil butter sauce.
Let me tell you how our teen sons love Bonefish Grill! They pretty much sum up our family spirit at Bonefish! Happy! :)  We paused for a moment before we were seated.








Our feelings exactly! :) I was so happy to get to spend my Birthday at Bonefish! Perfect timing and Thank you Bonefish Grill Cary! They served me their signature Dark Chocolate with pecans! Another favorite! 

                             

Bonefish Salads are excellent as well! The lemon vinaigrette with pine nuts was something I wish they sold in a bottle! :) 

                                

Bang Bang shrimp with green beans is one of our son's favorite things! 



A classic Bonefish Grill Half-Pound Wagyu Beef Burger* toasted brioche bun, fully dressed with sharp Cheddar and special sauce, add bacon is a favorite in our family, too! 

                             


***Exclusively at Bonefish Grill restaurants June 15-18, when a guest purchases $50 in gift cards they’ll receive five additional $10 bonus cards for a total of $50 in value.

We hope you get to take your Father or someone special to Bonefish Grill for the Creole Redfish specialties! Enjoy! 

Warmly, 
CarolinaMama
