Maple Rum Redfish Bites

Maple Rum Redfish Bites


2 large redfish fillets
1 package bacon
salt and pepper

Maple Rum Glaze

1/2 cup maple syrup
3 Tbsp spiced rum
6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
4 Tbsp freshly minced garlic, or 1¼ Tbsp dried minced garlic
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


Cut redfish fillets into 1½” cubes, add salt and pepper. Wrap each cube with a half strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick - soaking toothpicks in water is necessary when broiling or BBQing. Place wrapped redfish pieces in a glass dish and set aside.


Mix all the ingredients for glaze together and pour over redfish pieces, allow to soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Reserve glaze after removing redfish pieces for basting while cooking.
Place marinated pieces on a baking sheet covered with foil.
These can be cooked on a stovetop, broiled in the oven, or BBQ grill. Cook until bacon is done and fish flakes.
If using the broil method, set broiler to high, watch carefully, turning pieces to cook evenly.
Whichever your cooking method might be, baste liberally and do not overcook.
Yields 24 – 30 pieces
