Place lemons cut side down on grill. 03/03/2006 Made with 1.25 lbs fish, based on reviews: doubled seasoning using Old Bay instead of paprika, halved butter (LOVE butter and still only used half).
I may try a bit of sweet white wine for bull nose dolphin. Be sure to turn when broiling as the browning gives a nice texture and crunch.
The only changes I made were to substitute garlic powder for the garlic salt and I added a bit of dill and a bit of salt-free lemon pepper to the spice mix. I added some fresh squeezed lime juice (from a quarter of a leftover lime) in with the lemon juice/butter.
I loved the mayo/paprika topping too and added some fresh chopped parsley over the fish. My roommate loved this dish too.
Oh, yeah and I'm STILL trying to clean the mess out of my oven from all the splattered butter... LOL! 11/13/2003 As someone else mentioned this recipe is very buttery.
Like most reviewers, I halved the butter (I only had 3 grouper files). I substituted Old Bay for Paprika in the seasoning blend.
The directions didn't mention broiling (although you prepared it in a broiler pan), so after baking for 10 minutes, I spread with mayo & sprinkled with paprika, then broiled for 2-3 minutes to lightly “crisp.” My husband brought this home from a deep sea fishing trip, and we used this recipe.

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.

Then place two blistered peppers crosswise on the side of the plate as well as some crispy tomato skin. A: It is a piece of the fish that is connected to the bottom jaw, which includes the pectoral fins and extends right down to the stomach.
