Grouper with Macadamias and Brown Butter

Posted by Brette in Fish

I can’t often get fresh grouper here in Buffalo, so when I spot it, I jump on it! We got to Florida every spring and I make it when we’re there and also order it in restaurants (fried grouper sandwiches…yum). I happened upon some grouper recently and snapped it up. I decided to make a simple preparation with brown butter, macadamias and a few cracker crumbs and cream. It was so delicious.

1 grouper filet

salt and pepper

1/4 tsp dried dill

2 tbsp butter

1/3 tsp lemon juice

2 tbsp chopped macadamias

6 wheat thins or similar crackers (I used an all bran version)

1 tbsp cream


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the grouper in the center of the parchment and season with salt and pepper and dill. Place the butter in a covered bowl in the microwave and cook until brown. Stir in lemon juice and chopped macadamias. Pour over the fish. Fold the parchment (see Technique page) and bake for 10 minutes. Open the packet and sprinkle the cracker crumbs on top and drizzle with the cream. Spray the top lightly with cooking spray. Return to the oven, with the packet open for 3 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
