The grouper is seared to give it a slightly crisp crust that can hold up to the moisture from the tomato sauce topping. Use a heavy oven-proof skillet that can go from stovetop to oven. To seed a tomato, cut it in half, hold each half in the palm of your hand, and squeeze gently.
3 1/2 cups chopped seeded tomato (about 4 medium)
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
1 teaspoon capers
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (6-ounce) grouper fillets
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425°.
Combine first 10 ingredients in a medium bowl.
Heat oil in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Place fish, skin sides up, in pan; cook 2 minutes. Turn fish over; top with tomato mixture. Bring to a boil. Place pan in oven; bake at 425° for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
I used Roma tomatoes and added more red pepper than called for. Served with peppery arugula salad and feta. Made tomatoes in morning to marinade before the dinner. Quite quick to make and is worthy of the expensive Grouper. Only 5 WW points!!
This was outstanding. I could not find grouper, so used striped bass and it came out great. I followed the recipe exactly as printed. Served it with roasted asparagus. I will definitely make this recipe again. This dish is elegant for a special occasion.
I had this recipe in my recipe folder for quite a while and decided to try it today. I did not use grouper as this fish is not easily obtained in my country. I tried it with Snook fillet and it came out really great. I had to half the recipe because of the poundage of the fish. I will try this recipe with a thicker fillet, more like the thickness of the grouper. Perhaps suggestions of other types of fish would help.
Absolutely fantastic! We are visiting Florida and we had grouper that my husband and future son-in-law caught and it was delicious. Easy to make! My friend said, if we had gone out that would have been a $31.95 dinner! This will go in my recipe collection as a five star and will be remembered as a wonderful meal shared with friends.
