Recipe Instructions

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

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small skillet, add half of chopped vegetable mirepoix and saute 2 to 3 minutes until softened; season to taste with salt and pepper. Add chorizo and leeks and cook 2 minutes. Add shrimp, toss to mix and season with Bayou Blast and thyme. Add bread crumbs and cook a few moments more, just until mixture is heated through. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Taste and adjust seasoning.

Open a pocket in top of fish by cutting down one side of the backbone. Pocket should be about 6-inches wide. Season pocket and stomach cavity generously with salt, pepper and Creole spice; transfer fish to a baking sheet. Stuff half of stuffing into pocket and remainder into cavity. Brush entire fish with olive oil.

Make a salsa: Combine tomatoes with remaining cup of chopped vegetable mirepoix and about 1 1/2 tablespoons oil; season with Creole spice. Spoon salsa over entire fish. Roast 20 minutes, until just cooked through.

To serve, transfer fish to a large platter and drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil. Remove fish from bone at table.

This recipe yields 3 to 4 servings.
