It's been a popular post.
Guess people are enjoying the outdoors before winter hits.
If you'd like a little variety, here's another fish grilling recipe.
In Japan the call a sea bass a Suzuki, which made me think of David Suzuki.
No real connection to the recipe, but that's just me having a senior moment.
The word "grouper" comes from the Portuguese name for the fish - garoupa.
In Australia, the name "groper" is used instead of "grouper".
Some groupers are now farmed and are usually sold live in markets.
Yeah... well not here in the north end of Winnipeg.
I've been looking in the fresh fish section in my local grocery stores.
No, I didn't ask my local butcher/fish monger if he had grouper or sea bass.
I'm tired of making him laugh.
Groupers have a stout body and a large mouth, and can be quite large.
We're talking a fish over a meter long and weighing up to 100 kilograms.
That's over three feet long and weighing over 200 pounds.
The steaks from such a fish would be thick.
So something slender would not be a good substitute for a grouper recipe.
You can also use skinless, boneless chicken breast.
Which is always available, and is often on sale.
The pan should be 4 inches from the heat.
You can also serve the sauce in a gravy boat.
Some folks don't like mustard.
