  • 2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-6 oz Grouper fillets
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 6 tbsp Unsalted butter, cut into chunks
  • 2 tbsp Fresh lime juice, preferably organic
  • 2 tbsp Fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Generously sprinkle the grouper fillets with salt and black pepper on both sides and cook until opaque and flakey, approximately 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.

  • Remove from heat and whisk in the fresh lime juice. Stir in the fresh parsley leaves and season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Serve the grouper fillets immediately with a drizzle of the lime butter sauce on top. Pair with our Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes and Oven-Roasted Asparagus, as pictured, or your choice of sides. Enjoy!
