Grouper Fillets with Citrus-Fennel Relish

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jan Gautro; Leigh Ann Ross

Grouper is a popular catch in the Keys. Substitute mahimahi or any firm white fish. To get a head start, prepare and refrigerate the relish up to eight hours in advance. All you'll have to do to finish the dish is cook the fish just before dinnertime. Serve with crusty bread.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/2 cup relish)
