Season both sides of the pompano fillets with Creole seasoning. In a large sauté pan, over medium heat, add the oil. When the oil is hot, add the fillets. Cook on 1 side, flip over and remove from the heat. In a mixing bowl, combine the crabmeat, green onions, garlic, mayonnaise, and bread crumbs. Season with Creole seasoning and mix well. Spread a quarter of the crab filling over each fillet. Place in the oven and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. For the sauce: In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine the shallots, garlic and wine. Bring to a boil and reduce by half. Whisk in the butter, 1 cube at a time, until all of the butter is Incorporated and the sauce coats the back of a spoon. Strain through a fine mesh sieve. Season with salt and pepper. Add the parsley and mix well. To serve, lay the fillets in the center of each serving plate. Place the baby leeks around the fillets. Drizzle the sauce over the entire plate. Garnish with parsley. Yield : 4 servings EMERIL’S CREOLE SEASONING: Combine all ingredients thoroughly. Yield : 2/3 cup
