Some good options, as I mentioned earlier: red snapper fillets, cod, halibut, haddock, or sea bass. Here, we give it a quick coating in some Mediterranean spices including cumin, oregano, and paprika for color and depth.
More Mediterranean Flavor Makers: in addition to the spice mixture, we add in fresh minced garlic, fresh lemon juice, and excellent extra virgin olive oil. This trio is essential to creating the bright and bold Mediterranean flare to this recipe.

Bake for about 12 to 13 minutes or until the fish turns opaque and flakes easily using a fork. TIP: You've heard me say this earlier, no one likes dry fish so avoid overcooking your grouper.
