Grouper is such a versatile fish…and can be prepared so many ways…my favorite way to enjoy…Blackened Grouper. Think of a beautiful piece of Blackened Grouper on a salad, on top of my Mashed Cauliflower, or as the fish in my Fish Taco recipe.

Go on and grab a few pieces of fresh Grouper from The Carolina Meat & Fish Co. and a cast iron pan…click here for link to one of my favorite cast iron pans…and let’s start cooking!

Combine all of the seasoning ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Coat the grouper with a light layer of fresh lemon juice and generously rub the grouper with the seasoning to coat.

Heat an oil-rubbed, cast iron pan to medium-high (do not use a non-stick pan as the pan cannot hold up to the heat required to blacken). Place coated fish in pan and allow to sear on one side. Because grouper is a thicker fish and you need to cook thoroughly. While the grouper is searing, be sure to put a lid on top of the pan…flip after the first side is seared and replace lid. For a thicker piece of grouper, you will want to sear about 6 to 7 minutes per side. For a thinner piece of fish, 4 to 5 minutes will do. Just be sure not to burn…blackened does NOT mean to burn! ENJOY!!!
