Pan-Seared Grouper with Lime Butter Sauce
Healthy and delicious Pan Seared Grouper is elegant enough for a dinner party but is quick and easy enough for a weeknight meal. With just a few simple fresh ingredients this grouper recipe is ready in under 20 minutes.
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!
