Blackbeard's Grilled Seafood Sandwich

Clean Cajun fish sandwich stacked with jumbo shrimp. Built simple to get the full flavor of the seafood in focus. If you're not into fish sandwiches but in support of tacos you should take a look at our fish taco recipe (personal fav).
A friend asked how I grill fish without it turning into a grilling disaster. Well, I don't really know and disasters happen here too but, here's my typical rules for turning out a grilled fish filet:
Keep reading
Stay grill side. 
Preheat grill to medium high. 
The grill grates are well seasoned and not stripped to bare metal. 
Indirect heat touch the fish twice, once to flip n once to pull from grill. 
I don't normally coat the fish food with oils. You can
Look for white half way up the fish as an indicator to flip. Big metal spatula helps a lot and the flip is a delicate move like frying an egg. 
If the shrimp are big enough I'll lay each one on grill and by the time I get them all on grill the 1st ones need to be flipped. There are grill baskets for fish and shrimp to secure a perfectly grilled fish sandwich.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fish (fillet, I do Red's when fresh but Swai is my addiction 24/7)
  • 6 oz shrimp (='s 6 shrimp jumbo cleaned)
  • 4 oz bacon (='s 2 slices)
  • 1 oz sour cream
  • 2 tbs Cottonmouth
  • 1 tbs relish (sweet, sour, both)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 oz bread (='s 1 bun)
  • 1 tsp lime (squeeze)
  • 1 tsp butter
  • 1/2 oz lettuce (a leaf or two)

Instructions

  • Bake your bacon at 350 for 30 minutes in oven. This is what bottlenecks and takes all the time so precooked would be great.
  • Get your pit up to medium high on half side and a small pan on stove at medium heat to toast bun.
  • Coat all sides of the red fish and shrimp with Cottonmouth.
  • Sprinkle dash of salt all over too. To taste, less is safer.
  • Put butter in heated pan and drop both sides of bun on top.
  • Pull buns from heat when browned. Should be about 2 minutes.
  • Place fish on grill to the side of the heat source.
  • Start timer for 3 minutes.
  • Place shrimp on grill.
  • How's the redfish doing? Ready to flip? Make the call, look for white up the side and or dark grill marks. The timer lets you know you're close.
  • Do the same for shrimp on whether to flip or not.
  • Grill marks are not as important as seeing white rise at the side of animal. Half way up it's time to flip. Depending on your heat "power" you may not get any grill marks worth writing home about. It will be fine, no worries 😉
  • Pull when other side is done and squirt some lime all it/them.
  • Stack it all up and add whatever makes your best fish sandwich the best!

Notes

You will have extra fish and shrimp to make another sammie of just fork it.

Hay yall! Don’t be afraid to adjust or substitute ingredients to your taste. These recipes didn’t come from a written measured recipe. They are made, noted, measured on the fly, then pumped up here when time permits and most importantly only if they tasted good.

If you don’t have any Texas Butter I guess we’ll overlook it if you use what’s in your pantry. Be sure to ask how something turned out or you have questions. Expect grammar errors, these are not checked much other than what my browser flags. Well, in general I can’t spell worth a crap. Thanks – Shawn
