6 servings (serving size: 1 grouper fillet)

Inspired by the popular cocktail, sweet, delicate grouper takes on a tangy flavor from the fresh lime juice and tequila. Pair the grouper with yellow rice, black beans, and a pitcher of margaritas, of course.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place the fillets in a single layer in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish, and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Combine 1/2 teaspoon salt, cilantro, and the next 7 ingredients (cilantro through garlic clove) in a blender or food processor, and process until smooth. Pour cilantro mixture over the fillets, and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Remove fish from dish; discard marinade. Place fish on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Garnish fish with chopped chives and lime wedges, if desired.

Step 4

Note: Store cooked fillets in refrigerator for up to 1 day.

I used halibut because my fishmonger was out of grouper. It was delicious, but mainly because it was a beautiful piece of fish. I didn't think the marinade was all that flavorful.
