This recipe is from the Sea Shack Restaurant in Hilton Head, SC. It's easy to make, and the grouper tastes wonderful! Actual cooking time is just 5 minutes or so, depending on the thickness of your fish. If you can't find grouper, try for snapper, amberjack, or mahi mahi. **Prep time does not include marinating time.**

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tablespoons jerk seasoning
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 12 cup orange juice
  • 1 12 cups soy sauce, low sodium
  • 32 ounces grouper fillets


  1. In a large bowl, mix the jerk seasoning, olive oil, garlic, brown sugar, orange juice, and soy sauce. Place the grouper fillets in the marinade, then cover the bowl and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the grouper fillets from the marinade and cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until fish is opaque throughout, turning the grouper every minute.
  3. Serve immediately, while nice and hot!

I put this on my menu this week, and to my dismay the local grocery didn't have grouper. I used both red snapper and swordfish and it was delicious! Great light and healthy meal!

Good fish recipe. I found some grouper that was on sale at my local supermarket. Will do again. Made for Newest Zaar.
