Grouper with Tapenade

Tapenade is a thick Greek spread made of olives, capers, anchovies, olive oil, and lemon juice. It's often used as an appetizer spread, but here, we use it as a zesty topping for fish. Substitute 1/2 teaspoon anchovy paste for the anchovy fillet, if desired.


4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 1/2 tablespoons tapenade)
