Once you get the prep work done, this dish is done in a flash! Grouper is mildly flavored, with a gently firm white flesh, and the tomatoes, onions, and capers in the sauce really shine. Sliced, sauteed zucchini makes a great side dish.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Pat grouper fillets dry and add to the skillet. Cook until lightly browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Remove to a plate. Lightly season the uncooked side with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

  • Add remaining olive oil to the same skillet. Cook and stir onion over medium heat for 1 minute. Add garlic and stir for another 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes, red wine vinegar, and agave. Move the vegetables to one side of the skillet.

  • Return fillets to the skillet, uncooked side-down. Evenly distribute the vegetables around and over the fish. Sprinkle capers on top. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, uncovered, until the thickest part of the fillet flakes with a fork, 4 to 5 minutes.

  • Serve each fillet with vegetables. Garnish with fresh parsley.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute honey for agave if desired.

Use 3 cups cherry tomatoes, halved, instead of Roma tomatoes, if desired.

Cooking time for fish will vary, depending on the thickness of the fillet.

I made a few changes due to what I had on hand. I made this dish using tilapia, honey and two cans of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies. The wife and I both loved it. This was a nice change up from often times a boring, rather bland ‘whitefish’. I’ll definitely be making this again. Read More

The flavor was good but it needed a little more seasoning and sauce. I added a stick of butter and used a teaspoon of maple syrup instead of agave. I will make it again as it was a hit. Good with roasted red potatoes and fresh broccoli. Read More

Really excellent! Bonus that it's made in one pan and quite simple. The only change I'll make next time will be to season both sides of the fish. Read More
