The following recipe is perhaps slightly different to other easy fish recipes but it is no more difficult to make. Also, the end flavor is really good. You can switch the grouper for swordfish, sea bass, hake, or sea trout if you prefer, although grouper is a very satisfying fish.
The following recipe blends rosemary, garlic and a few other seasonings to spice up the grouper perfectly. The rosemary is especially delicious with the fish. To make the side dish, pak choi and rhubarb are combined with butter and garlic. This unusual but tasty rhubarb side dish goes very nicely with the fish. Many people only know rhubarb as a fruit, rather than as a vegetable, although it is used in savory recipes too and actually goes really well with them.
Most sweet recipes featuring rhubarb rely on sugar or another sweetener, whereas if you use rhubarb as a vegetable it really does not need a lot done to it, because its flavor is already good and it does not need to be sweetened if you are making a savory dish.
- 4 grouper filets, 6 oz each
- 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
- 2 minced garlic cloves

- 2 sliced garlic cloves
- ¼ cup water
- Rinse the fish and pat it dry, using paper towels.
- Season it with salt and black pepper and dust with flour.
- Heat the oil in a skillet and add the fish.
- Pan-fry it, turning it once, for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until browned.
- Transfer the fish to a warmed platter and cover it with aluminum foil to keep warm.
- Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for a minute.
- Add the water, sugar, vinegar and rosemary and cook, scraping up any stuck-on bits from the skillet.
- Keep cooking the sauce until it is reduced.
- Sauté the garlic in the butter for a minute, then add the rhubarb and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add the pak choi and cook it until it wilts.
- Add the water and cook until the water is gone and the rhubarb is tender.
- Transfer the fish to 4 serving plates and drizzle the rosemary sauce on top.
- Serve the rhubarb and pak choi mixture with the fish and add a lemon wedge to each plate.
This delicious recipe features grouper which is juicy and succulent, as well as a delicious rosemary sauce. You can serve the fish with a wedge of lemon or lime, since that is nice squeezed over the top. The rhubarb side dish might strike you as being unusual but, if you have only ever had rhubarb in dessert recipes, you will be surprised by its savory taste in this dish, especially when paired with the equally savory pak choi. A little butter and garlic finishes this side dish off perfectly. You can see from the picture that this makes a very appetizing meal.
