Lemon Blacken Grouper

"I like this because you know when you're eating fish it's hard to get enough lemon on there. You either put too much or not enough. This way seems to make it just about even all over the fish."

Ready In:




  • In large skillet melt butter.
  • Add garlic salt and pepper
  • Let this cook over medium heat for 1 minute, then add grouper or whatever fish you like.
  • Let the fish cook until about 3/4 the way done, then put a little butter on top of fish and add blackening seasoning. When fish is done, put on a plate and move to the side and keep it warm.
  • Stir in lemon juice into pan drippings. If you need a little more butter and garlic, put some in pan. Then add green onions and mushrooms. Let cook until green onions and mushrooms soak up lemon juice or until done.
  • Taste mushroom and if it makes you make a sour face, then you know it's done. If not, add a little more lemon juice.
  • Spoon over fish and enjoy.

    I've made this twice over the past couple months, it's very good. I decided to search for another grouper recipe for something different and this one caught my eye again. Maybe I don't need another recipe. :)

    This was the first time I made Grouper. Being pricier than other fish, I needed a fool proof way to prepare it and It was fantastic! I will go back to this recipe again and again for sure!<br/>Thanks for posting

    This was very good! I buy grouper often and will definitely make this again for a quick and easy meal.

    Grouper steak cooked right tastes like lobster tail. The lemon butter sauce was perfect. We didn't have mushrooms, but used Maui Onions, which are quite sweet. We served the fish with green beans, toasted pita bread, and feta cheese. We use a spicy blackening sauce (extra cayenne), with lots of oregano. Thanks for the recipe, we recommend it.

    This was both delicious and easy! Thanks for posting such a great grouper recipe. I will be making this one again and again.

    The flavour of this fish is wonderful! I couldn't get grouper and used red snapper instead. Since I forgot to buy green onions I substituted red onion. I then followed the recipe exactly as written using recipe#121923 for the blackening seasoning. I found the red onion worked well but next time, and there will be a next time, I'll use the recommended green onion. Thanks for posting.
