Dish: Cocha’s Winter Citrus Grilled Catch

Photo by Jenn Ocken

Cocha Restaurant’s fragrant, homey Winter Citrus Grilled Catch features a grilled redfish fillet flanked with seasonal and hyper-local flavors and textures. Grilled redfish, basted with a glaze of local citrus juice, salt, pepper, brown sugar and chili flakes is place on a purée of parsnips, Yukon Gold potatoes and fresh fennel, whose anise notes are further enhanced with a bit of Pernod. The fish is finished with tomatoes confit and grilled citrus segments. Green harissa, made in house with jalapeño, cilantro and parsley, dots the plate. Co-owner and wine expert Saskia Spanhoff recommends pairing this vibrant dish with a clean, crisp white, like a sauvignon blanc or a grüner veltliner. Ask for a window seat and enjoy the new mural across the street recently commissioned by Cocha and the Arts Council of Greater Baton Rouge.
