I first soaked the grouper in beer for about an hour, then used this recipe. I've been eating fried grouper all my life, as has my wife, and we were in agreement, we've never had any better (only made the grouper this time). Really simple, spectacularly delicious! Going to the beach for a week, and we'll try the slaw and hoagie roll for sandwiches. Can't wait!
