Baked grouper

While in Texas I made this meal twice for my non-fish loving parents. Grouper is a good gateway fish because it doesn’t taste fishy at all and it’s a little meatier than tilapia. This is a very simply prepared fish with a nice flavor



  • 1 pound grouper fillets
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lemon, whole
  • salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350.

Lightly oil or butter baking sheet. Place fish on baking sheet. Salt and pepper fish. Top with small pieces of butter. Squeeze half of lemon over fillets. Lay slices of lemon on top of fish.


Bake 15-20 minute or until lemon is cooked all the way through.

I served the fish with a side of roasted potatoes and some sauteed green beans.
