However, certain species can cause ciguatera poisoning so always be careful to check your local state guidelines and recommendations. The fish can get quite big, but you can get massive cheeks from black grouper as well if it is large enough.
Grouper cheeks are jaw muscles, which are beautiful hunks of meat located just above the mouth and right below the eye on top of the gill plate. Step 1 Put the tip of your filleting knife right on the line the top lip of the fish makes.
Step 2 Using the jaw bone to guide your knife, start sawing gently in a circle along with it till you get the cheek off. Step 4 Cut the meat out at the end when it is barely attached to the skin to get a clean cheek.
Here is a fantastic recipe for seared grouper cheeks that is on the menu at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando: Prepare the Grouper Cheeks Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a sauté pan and season 8 grouper cheeks with sea salt and pepper to taste before adding to the hot pan.
Cook for 2 minutes before it turns golden brown and then flips the cheeks. Prepare the Creamed Corn Take out the oil and butter from the pan before adding 2 tbsp of diced onions.

The red grouper is more popular with anglers because of the intense fight it puts up when it is hooked. I have been asked a number of times by overseas TV producers to introduce Singaporean cuisine which is off the beaten track and preferably with some “shock” factor.
I guess what they are looking for are bizarre foods like insects, reptiles or monkey brains. I have always struggled with this because the most shocking thing that we can offer are the placid stare of a decapitated curried snapper, soy infused fallopian tubes in a bowl of quay chap or perhaps the denuded penis of a goat in sup lambing.
I am sure that a meal consisting of stewed fish throat, stir-fried stomach, testicles chawanmushi finished off with dessert made from fish scales would make quite a compelling episode especially for a squeamish audience not used to having anything stare back at them when they eat ! In the last nine years of blogging, I have come across it a few times, but it hasn’t managed to stir up enough fascination to compel me to write about it.
Before we start our anatomical devastation, I just want to touch on the fascinating method in which the fish is dispatched. It was cleaved oil alright, the kind that you might find at aromatherapy shops.
This particular fish weighed about 30 kg and took about 2 years to grow from eggs which where hatched at his farm. This specimen is considered a juvenile compared to the 270 kg giant which he served at his restaurant in 2013.
The lower part of the head is prized for its skin which turns wonderfully gelatinous when stewed. The part just under the gills (2a) is especially prized and has a texture similar to duck web.
The lips (2b) are also very sought after, but they are not as thick as the Sew Ma (Napoleon Wrasse). The upper part of the head is not as valuable as the only portion of interest is the area around the eyes.
Stewed Fish Head (2b)The Chinese have a penchant for gelatinous textures which gourmands of the West might dismiss as “phlegm” or “mucous”. That is why things like sea cucumbers, chicken feet and fish heads are prized in Chinese gastronomy.
When it comes to fish, the head is where the treasure lies and it usually goes to the matriarch of the household (in the old days at least). The stewed fish head (lower portion (2b) was excellent and should make mum very happy.
In fact, the internal organs, which are usually discarded in smaller fish, are considered delicacies. It is less powdery but not as creamy as phone gas and the “livery” flavor is not as pronounced as with pork liver.
The pectoral fin (7) section is rather tough in the Giant Grouper, unlike tuna and yellowtail amber jack (burn) where the Kama (neck) is tender and has a wonderful flavor when simply grilled with salt. We sampled the dorsal fin braised with soy sauce and ma Che in an earlier session.
I didn’t think that the braising sauce suited the flavor of the fish, although I thoroughly enjoyed the balance of meat, fat and collagen in the fin. The bottom-most part of the belly (11) is very well exercised and is full of connective tissue which can be broken down into gelatin through slow cooking.
The next three parts are so small that they are not on the menu and is only offered to patrons of the restaurant who specifically ask for it. Giant groupers are monastic protogynous hermaphrodites which means that they change sex as they mature.
The taste is ok and the texture is like minced meatballs but it isn’t something that I would specifically ask for. The jelly like marrow lies within the vertebral bone and it’s best eaten raw.
Now, I won’t advocate eating anything raw (unless it is served by a sushi chef), but I did have a taste of it after I was assured by Johnny that a certain prominent doctor always reserves this for himself. In smaller fish, the amount of red muscle is so small that you don’t make it a point to separate them.
The scales of the grouper has become quite a commodity in recent years due to the popularity of collagen. I first encountered grouper scale soup while we were doing a mission trip in Andaman with Educate.
One of the best ways to get some extra collagen is to order their guiding GAO for dessert. It tastes quite similar to guiding GAO made in the traditional way.
