Margarita Grouper

Submitted by: BUTTERFLYSONGS
Margarita Grouper

Introduction

A nice change of pace for seafood. The combination of the sweetness of the margarita flavor with the spice and zest of the salsa gives a unique taste to this dish. I suggest marinating marinating 3 hours in the refrigerator versus 30 minutes unrefrigerated because it gives it a richer, zestier flavor. A nice change of pace for seafood.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 pounds Grouper fillets

    1/3 cup White or gold tequila

    1/2cup Triple sec

    3/4 cup Fresh lime juice

    1 teaspoon Salt plus more to taste

    2 or 3 large cloves garlic, crushed

    1 tablespoon Olive Oil, extra virgin

    3 medium Tomatoes, diced

    1 medium Onion, finely chopped

    1 tablespoon Minced jalapeno or serrano chilies, or more to taste

    2 To 4 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

    1 pinch of sugar

    Fresh ground Black Pepper to taste

Directions

Serves 4 6oz servings

Freshly ground black pepper. Place fish in a dish large enough to hold it in a single layer. Combine tequila, triple sec, lime juice, salt, garlic and 2 tsp oil and pour over fish, rubbing all over. Cover and marinate for 1/2 hour at room temperature or up to 3 hours in the refrigerator, turning occasionally.

Just before serving, combine tomatoes, onions, chiles, cilantro, sugar and salt to taste. Heat the grill to very hot. Remove fish from marinade, pat dry (reserving marinade) and brush lightly with 1 tsp oil and grind pepper over the surface. Cook on a greased grill for about 4 minutes per side or until flesh is opaque. (You can also broil.)

Meanwhile, boil marinade in saucepan for 2 minutes, remove and discard garlic cloves, and spoon a little of it over the fish, Spoon the tomato salsa over or alongside fillet and serve.
