GREEK GRILLED GROUPER (Adapted from Southern Living)

This dish is especially great if you can get fresh fish while at the beach!  But if not, get the freshest you can find somewhere like Whole Foods or Fresh Market. It’s a simple preparation (just olive oil and Greek seasoning), which I think is the only way to prepare this delicious fish.  And then accompanied with this homemade yummy tartar sauce – it doesn’t get much better! This recipe feeds a crowd – adjust accordingly.

12 (8-oz.) grouper fillets
1/4 cup olive oil
1 TBSP Greek seasoning
24 (1/4-inch-thick) lemon slices
Dot’s Tartar Sauce

Rub fish fillets with oil; sprinkle evenly with Greek seasoning.

Top each fillet with 2 lemon slices. Place a large piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil (sprayed with cooking spray) over grill grate. Arrange fish on top of the foil.

Grill fillets, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350 – 400 degrees) 15 minutes or until fish flakes with a fork.

Serve with Dot’s Tartar Sauce.

Dot’s Tartar Sauce
1 cup mayonnaise
2 TBSP dill pickle relish (I used sweet since it’s all I had – and it was fine)
2 TBSP drained capers
2 TBSP chopped fresh chives
1 TBSP chopped fresh tarragon
1 TBSP Dijon mustard
2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp black pepper

Stir together all ingredients until blended. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
