Remove the vegetables from the oven and cool. Dice the vegetables and set aside. In a large saute pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil.

In a saucepan, combine the Worcestershire sauce, lemons and bay leaves. Bring the liquid up to a simmer and simmer the liquid until it reduces by 2/3, about 4 minutes. Whisk the cold butter cubes into the sauce, a cube at a time, until all the butter is incorporated. The sauce should be thick and coat the back of a spoon. Keep the sauce warm. In a hot saute pan, render the andouille sausage for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool the sausage completely. Turn the cooled sausage into a mixing bowl. Stir in the bread crumbs. Season the fillets with the Creole seasoning. In a large, ovenproof saute pan, heat the remaining olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the redfish, presentation side down first. Saute the redfish for 4 minutes on the first side and carefully flip over. Cover the top of each fillet with a quarter of the andouille crust. Place the saute pan in the oven and cook for 5 minutes. To assemble. Spoon the sauce in the center and around the rim of each plate. Mound the shoestrings in the center of each plate. Place three piles of the relish around the shoestrings of each plate. Gently lay each fillet on the pile of shoestring potatoes.
