Ingredients

Lemon Butter Sauce:
Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Directions

Either season the salmon with Essence. Or, season both the snapper and flour with Essence. Dredge the snapper in the seasoned flour, coating completely.

In one large stainless saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil. In another large stainless saute pan, heat the vegetable oil.

Add the salmon to the first saute pan, searing for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.

Add the snapper to the second saute pan, pan-frying for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. In a large nonstick pan, over medium heat, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes.

To serve, spoon the 1/4 cup of sauce in the center of each plate. Spoon the vegetables in the center of the sauce. Lay the fillets on top of the vegetables. Garnish with parsley.

Lemon Butter Sauce:

Heat a large nonreactive skillet over high heat. When the skillet is hot, add the wine, lemons, garlic, and shallots. Cook for 3 minutes, breaking up and mashing the lemons with a wire whisk. Stir in the salt, pepper, Worcestershire, and hot sauce and cook until the mixture is somewhat syrupy, for about 3 minutes. Stir in the cream and cook for 1 minute.

Over low heat, whisk in the butter a few pats at a time. When all of the butter has been added, remove from the heat, but continue whisking until all of the butter is incorporated into the sauce.

Strain the sauce, pressing all of the liquid into a bowl. Stir in the parsley. Serve immediately, or keep warm for a few minutes until ready to use.

Essence (Emeril's Creole Seasoning):

Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
