We love seafood and eat a lot of it at our house. In fact, we probably have fish or shellfish at least once a week. I not only love the taste, I like that it’s so easy to prepare, a healthy alternative to meat, and relatively low in calories. It’s a win-win! We are really lucky to live in Florida and have access to wonderful fresh seafood all year long, and we take full advantage of it. Although this recipe calls for grouper, you can easily substitute any firm white fish such as red snapper, red fish, flounder or halibut. Because fish cooks so quickly, the fillets should be at least 1 inch thick.
I usually like to sauté fish because it only takes a few minutes, but this baked fish recipe is a great change of pace and can go from the oven to the table in only 20 minutes. You could even use those 20 minutes to prop up your feet and enjoy a glass of wine.
