  • Melt the clarified butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place the grouper in the skillet and cook until lightly browned and the fish is easily flaked with a fork, 2 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove from skillet, and set aside. Drain any remaining clarified butter in the skillet, and wipe clean. Add the chilled butter and lemon juice to the skillet. Cook and stir until the butter is melted. Gradually whisk in the reserved seasoned flour; cook and stir for 5 minutes. Stir in the hot milk, whisking constantly until the sauce has thickened, about 5 minutes more. Serve sauce over the grouper.

WONDERFUL...Nothing needs to be added or removed. Super fast and easy. For a great dinner try steamed asparagus with slivered almonds fresh corn on the cob and Loaded baked potatoes. Looks and taste like you have slaved mover the stove all day.:)

Extremely easy and amazing taste. I really don't like to eat most fish and only eat it for the health benefits. This dish I loved and my husband said it was one of the best ever and he also eats out at great restaurants. I didn't modify much just added a little parsley for the color a little less salt for health and since I didn't have lemon pepper I added a little more lemon and pepper.

I made this with Tilapia because that's what I had on hand at my parents house. I also made it for a couple people that don't really like fish and they loved it. I will make this again for sure.

This is a very good recipe. However it appeared to have too much pepper. I cut it down slightly but it was still too peppery. I will make it again with a tsp rather than a T of pepper. Other than that it is really delicious.
