Looking for some recommendations on what to do with some Grouper Filets I plan to cook tonight.

    jrw:[p]Dust them with some Lawry's and grill them in the range of 300* - 325* dome temperature until done. Careful now, over cooked fish is only for the cat . . .
  • Thanks for the reply. I've never cooked fish on my BGE, any idea how long I should cook? Filets are about 1/2 inch thick.

    jrw:[p]In a hot egg, approximately 20 to 25 minutes should do it.

    spoofer:[p]Silly! The Lawry's comes AFTER the hammer!

    I would try cooking them on a well oiled and pre-heated vegetable grate. Brush the fish with oil or butter and season with salt & pepper. Arrange the filets on the grate & grill until browned on the bottom & starting to turn opaque on top, 3-6 minutes. Turn the filets over with a spatula, brush with oil or butter again and cook for another 3-6 minutes until the fish breaks into firm flakes when pressed with a finger. Serve with fresh lemon wedges.
    A favorite method of mine for grouper & snapper is to coat the fish with mayo, then salt, lemon pepper, dill and green onions. I grill it on a piece of foil until done (without turning it). Good luck! JCA

    J Appledog,[p]Hi Ms. Julie! Welcome home, and did you bring some of that wonderful Florida grouper home with you?
  • J AppledogJ Appledog Posts: 1,046
    BBQBeth, Thanks! No grouper; just some buttonwood so I can smoke some dolphin, hopefully like the great treat we found on Captiva. Drove by your exit but was on a mad dash for Destin and endless oysters that day. JCA
