This recipe is by Jim Shirley, the chef at "Fish House" in Pensacola, FL. It was prepared at the cooking demonstration during the Seafood Festival in 2007. Everyone that got a taste loved it, and at the festival this year (2008), people were still talking about it. He used redfish, but you could also use any nice firm white fish, such as trigger, snapper, or grouper. *Please note...If you choose to use tilapia, reduce the fig mixture..the tilapia is not a firm enough fish nor is it thick enough to support these flavors as posted!. Generally tilapia fillets are much thinner than redfish, and the sauce will overwhelm it.* **Please note...most of the reviews have used frozen tilapia....this fish is not thick enough to support the flavors of this recipe....please reduce the fig mixture if you are using tilapia!** Of course, fresh always tastes better than frozen, so try to go fishing or to your local fish market if you are on the coast. Be prepared to enjoy this! It is delicious!
