Grouper with Tapenade

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.

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


  • 4 none (6-ounce) grouper or other white fish fillets
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • none Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup pitted kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 none garlic cloves, halved
  • 1 none anchovy fillet
  • 1/2 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh lemon rind


1. Preheat broiler.

2. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper; place on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

3. Process olives and next 5 ingredients in a food processor until finely chopped, scraping sides of bowl if necessary. Serve with fish.
