Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds grouper, cut into 4 (6-ounce) fillets
Canola or olive oil for cooking
12 ounces arugula, washed and dried
1 lemon, juiced
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat a medium-sized sauté pan over medium high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to the pan.
  2. Lightly season each grouper fillet with salt and pepper. Carefully add the seasoned grouper fillets to the hot pan. Cook each fillet for around 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown and completely cooked throughout the thickest part of the fillet. Remove cooked grouper fillets from pan and let cool slightly.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, add arugula, 1 teaspoon vegetable oil and the lemon juice. Season the arugula lightly with the salt and pepper. Mix the arugula to evenly coat and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  4. To serve, place an even amount of arugula on each plate and top with grouper fillet. Serve dish with grilled or roasted Florida vegetables.

Makes 4 servings.
