Mediterranean Baked Grouper

Happy Monday, which means seafood! I tend to go to Mazzaro's Italian Market each Monday and get fresh seafood. Today they had some beautiful fresh, local grouper. Tonight I tried a new recipe and it was very easy and came out so yummy. The one thing I changed from the original recipe, noted above, is that I cooked the fish by itself. I had already gotten some green beans mixed with artichokes to have as the side. There ended up being leftover marinade because of that, but I'm saving it to use on something tomorrow - so good! My recipe below is for my version without the vegetables. This would work on most white fish, so give this a try. Healthy can also be delicious - enjoy!


1 pound grouper, cut into individual portions

2 lemons, zested

2 lemons, juiced

1 cup olive oil

1 1/2 tb garlic, minced

2 tsp fresh dill, diced

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp dried oregano

1/2 tsp ground coriander


Preheat the oven to 425. In a medium- large bowl, combine all of the ingredients above for the sauce. Pat the fish dry, and then add to the sauce and coat all sides. Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and add the fish - separated and not touching. Spoon a little extra sauce on each piece. Top each piece of fish with a dash of extra salt. Bake for 15 minutes, and then move to the upper rack and broil on high for 2-3 minutes. Remove and spoon the sauce over the fish. Serve with your desired side. For my prepared green beans and artichoke, I heated them in a saucepan with a couple spoonfuls of the sauce - delish! Enjoy!
