Photo: Oxmoor House
Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 6 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 sandwich)
Grouper is a white-meat fish that is well suited for the grill. If you can't find grouper, use sea bass or mahimahi. Look for fish that is free of blemishes, has a fresh smell, and has flesh that springs back when touched. Serve these fish sandwiches with fresh seasonal cherries and pineapple to add bright color and tart flavor to your meal.Prep: 6 minutes; Cook: 6 minutes


  • 4 (6-ounce) grouper fillets (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • Tartar Sauce
  • 4 (1.8-ounce) white wheat hamburger buns
  • 4 green leaf lettuce leaves
