Jen's Super Grouper

"I love grouper, and this is my favorite way to make it! *****Note: I just wanted to note (based on a couple of reviews) that this fish is not supposed to have a crispy breading on it, so if that is what you are looking for or expecting, you might want to try something else or alter it to suit your tastes. As written, the breadcrumbs are meant to be soft, almost like a thin coating of stuffing."

  1. The breadcrumbs got soggy.
  2. This was a huge hit with our family. It was very flavorful! We needed a change from the everday same ol fish recipe and this was perfect! I had to cook the fish longer than the time indicated b/c my filets were thick like steaks. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as is and it was deeeeelish! Thanks for sharing! :)
  3. This dish has been in my "want to try" cookbook for a while now, but unfortunately, we were a bit disappointed with the results. I made it exactly as written, but there was so much lemon garlic butter that the breadcrumb coating just turned to mush. DH said the lemon and garlic completely overpowered the mild flavor of the fish. I would recommend just scaling back the amount of butter, lemon, and garlic, because the grouper itself turned out very tender.
  4. I made this tonight scaling it down a bit to serve two and I really enjoyed this fish dish. I did almost skip using butter all together and just used lemon juice since I really dislike fish recipes that are filled with butter, I prefer the fish taste to be prominent. So I only used about a 1/2 tbs of butter. This recipe delivered an excellent fish dinner that was quick and easy to make. I served it with Recipe #222578 for a very simple meal that looks impressive!


I was born in Chicago, IL and have lived in the area all my life. I love to cook and plan meals and always have. As a child I would watch Julia Childs on TV every day (she came on right after Mr. Rogers) and I have been interested in cooking ever since. Now that I have a family I enjoy the quick and easy recipes just as much as the more intricate ones. I didn't mind putting in the extra time and effort when I only cooked recreationally. I still like to do that sometimes, but for the day-to-day chore of cooking (and sometimes it is a chore) I like the option of fast and simple. I enjoy trying new recipes and sharing favorites of mine. I have found that sometimes the most unlikely sounding ones turn out to be the best! I try to always review the recipes I try because I know how much I enjoy getting that feedback myself. Even when it is not necessarily positive because sometimes suggestions help me tweak things and make them better!
