Anna Sultana's Cerna Fl-imbjank - Poached Grouper, Maltese Style

Hope you enjoyed Ma's recipe for Grilled Grouper with Mustard Sauce.
But it is getting colder.
The weather… not the grouper.
Time for some recipes to cook indoors.

In the post for Grilled Grouper there was some information on the fish.
A quick refresher…
Groupers are hefty, like a mackerel or tuna.
Their steaks would be large.

This would not work with sole.
But the sole would work in Ma's recipe for Mixed Fish Fry.
It's all good.
Like they say:
Even a stopped watch is right twice a day.

The fish should be simmered gently so that it will remain in one piece and not dry out.
The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the steaks.

4 - 6 grouper steaks

4 Tablespoons olive oil

2 teaspoons mint

Or a favourite starch (rice, pasta, etc.) and a cooked vegetable.
It's all good.
