Cook Time: 30 min
1 head of garlic, unpeeled, cloves separated
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 (7-ounce) jar of roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
1 small dill pickle, chopped finely
1 1/2 tablespoons drained and rinsed capers, chopped
1 tablespoon minced shallots
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1/2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. To prepare sauce: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place garlic on baking sheet. Add oil and toss to coat. Bake until garlic is soft (about 20 minutes). Remove from oven and let cool. Press garlic between fingers to release cloves. Chop garlic and transfer to a bowl. Add all remaining sauce ingredients and mix well.
2. To prepare fish: Sprinkle Cajun seasoning over all sides of the fish. Heat oil in a heavy large skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat. Add fish and cook until outside is crisp and fish is cooked through, turning occasionally (about 8 minutes).
3. Transfer fish to plates and serve with sauce.
*To save time on cooking day, the garlic can be prepared one day ahead and refrigerated.
*If you are preparing this recipe as gluten-free, just be sure to use brands of mayonnaise and Cajun seasoning that are known to be GF.
