  • 2 T Olive Oil
  • 4 6 oz Grouper filets
  • 6 T Butter unsalted, cut into chunks
  • 2 T Fresh Lime or fresh lemon juice
  • 2 T Fresh parsley leaves finely chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the filets on a flat surface and pat fish dry with paper towels.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Generously sprinkle the grouper portions with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  • Cook until opaque and flakey, approximately 3-4 minutes, turn fish and cook for another 3-4 on the second side. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  • Add the butter to a small skillet set over medium heat, whisking continually until the butter melts and golden brown in color, approximately 3 minutes.
  • 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. Enjoy!
