Mix the flour, cayenne and salt and pepper again in a dish or baggie and then dredge each fillet in until lightly coated. Heat up the oil in a (non-stick I prefer) pan over medium high and sauté the grouper until lightly golden on each side.

It’s piled high with broiled grouper, sauerkraut, and a homemade yogurt-based Russian dressing. And guys, when you’re cooking dinner every single day, it can get a little boring.

To help battle dinner-time boredom, I’ve been trying to include a few make -at-home versions of my favorite restaurant meals. I love making cod Reuben's, because cod is easy to find locally, but my first fish Reuben was at a seaside Florida café and included (you guessed it) grouper.

This fish plays nice with the strong flavors in the Reuben, such as sauerkraut and Russian dressing. Swap another dense or flaky white fish, such as cod.

Cook the grouper under a broiler for about nine minutes per inch of thickness until it’s tender and opaque. Layer Russian dressing, sauerkraut, grouper, and Swiss cheese onto rye bread.

Add the sandwiches to the pan and cook for about two minutes per side, until the bread is toasted and the cheese is melted. Grill Until the Bread is Goldener your grouper Reuben's right away along with some crispy oven fries and a dill pickle.

Reuben : 4 slices rye bread preferably Jewish rye ½ cup sauerkraut 2 slices Swiss cheese (optional), add more if desired 1 tablespoon butter Add remaining oil to an oven-safe pan or casserole dish.

Cook grouper for 9 minutes per 1” thickness, or until the fish is opaque and the edges are beginning to brown. Grill the Sandwiches: Prepare sandwiches by layering one slice of bread, a thick layer of the Russian sauce, sauerkraut, the grouper, cheese, and another piece of bread.

To make the sandwiches, combine sauerkraut, carrot, and ¼ cup dressing in a medium bowl and mix well. You'll know it's done when juices start to surface and fish flakes easily when pierced with a knife.

The first grouperreuben I ever tried was at a small, homey-type restaurant called Dominick’s in Ft. Pierce, a favorite place for my grandpa to take me when I’d come home for a visit. The fish was crispy fried, the bread was buttery, it was dripping with Russian dressing, and came topped with a mound of coleslaw.

For many years after that I started custom-ordering it at restaurants that had the components on the menu, but not the actual grouper (or Mali would do) Reuben. Eventually I started seeing the sandwich on most Florida-style menus with minor variations: coleslaw or sauerkraut, A Thousand Island dressing or Russian, fried fish or blackened.

Turns out, when done at home, this flavor bomb of a sandwich can be just as nutritious as it is tasty. The high heat of the canning process may destroy a lot of the probiotics as well as other vital nutrients, so seek out raw when possible.

Try Beagle Bay, Sarasota’s own organic, raw sauerkraut available at Whole Foods and Earth Origins. Adding fermented foods to your daily diet is probably the single most important thing you can do for your health.

Rye is a nutrient-dense grain with many health benefits, including regulating blood sugar, helping with weight loss, and reducing breast cancer risk. Most grocery store varieties use very little rye and add sugar, making it a not-so-smart choice.

Place slices of marble rye bread on flattop, top each with A Thousand Island dressing and slices of Swiss cheese. Top filet and the other slice of bread with warm sauerkraut.

Remove sandwich from griddle, cut on a bias and plate with a pickle spear. In a large cast iron skillet blacken the fish, When it is done set aside.

Mix the thousand island dressing and the sauerkraut together. For this step I use an electric skillet, then I can make all four at one time.

Remove sandwich from griddle, cut on a bias and plate with a pickle spear. It’s not something I order or have regularly, but when I do, it’s pretty much a given that every single morsel, including every last bit of Russian dressing that’s fallen to the wayside will be devoured.

However, when I was watching some Cooking Channel show with Katie Lee, and they visited a beachside restaurant known for their snapper Reuben, it made total sense to swap out the more classically known protein, pastrami, for a perfectly cooked piece of fish. While I’m sure red snapper is delicious, I prefer a heartier fish that can stand up to the heavy hand of sauerkraut, cheese and dressing I slather the bread with.

For me, this was halibut because it’s what my grocery store had in stock, but mahi, swordfish, or even tuna would be a great substitute; however, if you have the choice, go with the halibut. So before I did anything with the fish, I made a homemade Russian dressing, something I haven’t tackled before.

Three, Russian dressing has a couple of additional savory ingredients like lemon juice and Worcestershire sauce, that Thousand Island lacks. I happen to love a hint of horseradish, so my dressing leans more towards the Russian side, but I also used ketchup since it’s what I had on hand.

For simplicity purposes, I’m just going to go ahead and call this Russian dressing. Of course, a Reuben isn’t complete without a little of sauerkraut, a generous hand of nutty Swiss cheese (I used a Gruyère and Swiss Trader Joe’s combo), and traditional rye bread.

In a bowl, combine mayo, ketchup, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, salt, onion, and horseradish. While the fish cooks, start putting sandwiches together.

Spread half of the remaining butter on top piece of bread. Working in batches, place sandwiches butter-side down in the hot skillet.
