  • Yield: 4 servings


  • Grouper:
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/4 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
  • 4 (6-ounce) grouper fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • Tartar sauce:
  • 1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions
  • 1 tablespoon sweet pickle relish
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons capers
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Additional ingredient:
  • 4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns, split


Preheat oven to 450°.

To prepare grouper, combine cornmeal, salt, and red pepper in a shallow dish, stirring well with a fork. Place milk in a shallow bowl.

Dip each fillet in milk; dredge in cornmeal mixture. Place fish on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until fish is done, turning once.

To prepare tartar sauce, combine mayonnaise and next 5 ingredients (mayonnaise through Worcestershire), stirring with a whisk.

Spread about 2 tablespoons tartar sauce over cut sides of each bun; place one fish fillet on bottom half of each bun. Top fillets with the remaining bun halves.
