We baked the perfectly seasoned grouper fillets and vegetables for a couple of reasons. Also, by roasting all of this together on a sheet pan, you get the time to throw the slaw ingredients together without having to watch over the fish while it cooks.
Place the sheet pan in the oven and bake for 20-25 min or until the internal temperature of the grouper reaches 145 degrees. While the grouper fillets bake, make the slaw by placing the sliced cabbages, sliced shallot, minced garlic, chopped cilantro lime zest, lime juice, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Combine corn, tomato, green onions, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 1 tablespoon oil, cilantro,jalapeño pepper, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper in a bowl.

And don’t forget, while you’re working on the fish ’s head, that there’s also some good meat to be found in the throat. Like cheeks, throats are sometimes overlooked or ignored, but they also provide a nice piece of tender meat that’s also good for tacos.
That means hard-shell corn tacos, crisp veggies and fried fish. For breading, I prefer using equal amounts of crushed Saltines and all-purpose flour, seasoned with a bit of Cajun spice and some salt and black pepper.
If you heat your oil (canola or peanut) to about 375 degrees and don’t crowd the pan, you’ll get perfectly fried fish in just a few minutes. As soon as the cheeks are golden brown and drained on paper towels, it’s time to assemble your tacos.

The Florida coast is teeming with all kinds of wonderfully tasty fish you can enjoy in endless ways both at home and in restaurants. Whether you want to take a boat out into the open waters and cast a line into the deep blue yourself or you prefer to pull up a chair and order your catch of the day from a local seafood restaurant, here are the four best Gulf Coast fish to eat fresh in Florida.
This type of fish has a very mild flavor (somewhere in between sea bass and halibut) with a light, sweet taste and large, chunky flakes, almost like lobster or crab. But you’ll also find it served in fillets which are baked, grilled or broiled with a flavor-bursting medley of garlic, butter, olive oil and key lime juice.
If you prefer your fish to be filleted, Snapper is amazing when marinated in the same citrus-garlic-cilantro mix mentioned above and quickly sautéed in a hot pan with a drizzle of olive oil before being served with light, fluffy rice and fresh seasonal veggies. Shook is really popular among local fishermen because it offers a fun challenge to catch and it tastes fantastic.
In Santa Rosa Beach, Buddy’s Seafood Market always has a fresh supply of Mali, grouper and other in-season fish. During the week she knuckles down and gets the job done, but on the weekend she spends her time soaking up the sunshine on the little volcanic island she calls home.
Saturday was beautiful, and we decided it was a perfect day to grill something and eat outside. Finally, after much discussion, we settled on grouper, which is our favorite fish and perfect for grilling.
My husband, who is the grille in our family, fired up his Green Egg, and less than 30 minutes later we had some of the most delicious grouper I have ever eaten. Fresh grouper is a lean, moist fish with a distinctive yet mild flavor, large white flakes and a firm texture.
For the mango salsa, you will need fresh mangoes, red and green bell peppers, a shallot, crushed pineapple, jalapeños, parsley, two cloves of garlic, lemon or lime juice, and salt and pepper. Since there are only two of us, we made grilled grouper and mango salsa tacos with the leftovers the next night for dinner.
Just heat up four flour tortillas in the oven; once they are warm, add the grouper, a little shredded cabbage and mango salsa; and voilà, another scrumptious dinner on the table in less than 10 minutes.

If you don’t have either of these, first make sure your grill grate is squeaky clean, then liberally oil the grate using tongs holding a folded paper towel which has been soaked in vegetable oil to ensure your fish doesn’t stick. While the grill is heating up, add the mango, red and green bell pepper, jalapeño, crushed pineapple and juice, garlic, shallots, lemon or lime juice and parsley to a large bowl and mix well.
The salsa can also be made 24-48 hours ahead of time to allow the flavors to develop. When your grill and fish grate are hot, add your fillets and close the lid.
To check to see if your fish is done, take a fork and gently pull back a section in the center. The goal is to pull the fish off right before it completely finishes cooking and then let it rest loosely covered with aluminum foil for about 10 minutes.
