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.
To serve, place a fillet on a plate and spoon mango salsa over the top. With professional sports mostly on hold ahead of planned reopening in the wake of the outbreak of the coronavirus, players have had the chance to take some time to themselves.
Many are doing a great job of staying in shape, working out at their local gyms, with personal trainers or in other creative ways. On Thursday morning, former Florida offensive lineman and current Jacksonville Jaguars tackle Japan Taylor posted video of a scintillating, if unexpected, workout he recently got in.
“Man, it's like pulling up a bus,” Taylor says on the video, moments before he finally gets the Goliath grouper up near the side of the boat, belly up. However, the species has been protected from harvest or possession in both state and federal waters off Florida since 1990 after a decline in the active population.
The most recent stock assessment of the fish population happened in 2016, indicating the number in south Florida has greatly increased since 1990, but in the final step of the review process the assessment was rejected by an independent panel of scientists for use in federal management due to a lack of reliable indicators of abundance outside south Florida. A lonely fish who ate all of his tank mates became 'depressed' after he was left with no company when his aquarium closed during the pandemic.
Groupers tend to grow rather big, but some species have been successfully kept by aquariums with large aquariums. It lives in the Indo-Pacific, from the Red Sea down to South Africa and eastwards to Hawaii and Micronesia.
In the western Pacific, you can find Bumblebee groupers from southern Japan to Australia. The Bumblebee grouper is normally seen in lagoons and around coral reefs, but it has also been observed over rocky bottoms, mudflats, among seagrass and out in pelagic and pelagic waters.
The Bumblebee grouper has been found down to a dept of 100 meters (330 feet), but it is more commonly encountered in shallower water. Epimetheus lanceolatus is too uncommon to be of any major commercial importance for large fisheries, but it is a popular species in the live reef food-fish trade in South East Asia, especially in China and in regions with a significant Chinese population.
Large specimens are stringy with a strong flavor and are therefore not very appreciated as food fish. Small specimens are on the other hand considered a delicacy and the meat is appreciated worldwide.
(1 kg = 2.2 lbs) Epimetheus lanceolatus is caught to satisfy the global aquarium trade. What we do know is that this species have a minimum population doubling time that exceeds 14 years, which makes it vulnerable.
The Bumblebee grouper doesn’t reach sexually maturity until it is 105-130 cm (-3.4-4.3 feet) in size. Many fish traders in Hong Kong and mainland China are today offering live Bumblebee groupers from full cycle hatchery cultures in China and Taiwan and this will hopefully decrease the pressure on our remaining wild populations.
In the Northern Territory, no species of the genus Epinephelusmay be taken if it exceeds 120 cm (almost 4 feet) in length. India has imposed a total ban on capture and sale of Epimetheus lanceolatus in the Union Territory of Andaman Islands.
The Bumblebee grouper is one of the biggest bony fishes found around coral reefs. Author, inventor and avid scuba diver Arthur C. Clarke did for instance report seeing an approximately 20 feet (over 6 meter) long grouper in a sunken floating dock of the coast of Sri Lanka.
There are aquarium keepers that have kept bumblebee groupers successfully in freshwater for several years but this is not recommended, and they will eventually need to be moved to saltwater environment. If you want to keep a Bumblebee grouper, you must provide it with an aquarium that mimics its natural habitat in the ocean.
If possible, give your grouper a suitably sized cave or similar where it can live, just as it would in the wild. The Bumblebee grouper will not harm corals in the aquarium, but it will eat any fish small enough to defeat.
It doesn’t seem to migrate and it likes to seek out a suitable cave or wreck and spend most of its time there. In the wild, the Bumblebee grouper is a carnivore fish that feeds on a lot of different animals and swallow all its preys whole.
It is very fond of the spiny lobsters that inhabit coral reefs and rocky environments in the ocean, but will also eat young sea turtles and many types of fish, including small sharks and members of the super order Avoided. Bumblebee groupers living in South African estuaries feed chiefly on mud crabs.
There is however anecdotal reports of such occurrences and interviews with fishermen indicate that Bumblebee groupers might congregate to spawn in the waters of eastern Indonesia.
