Our customers just love it when grouper season arrives. But how much do you know about this fan-favorite fish?  Here are just a few facts courtesy of charterkeylargo.com.
  • There are over 100 types of groupers!
  • The bright markings on their body change in color to camouflage with the background.
  • The Atlantic goliath grouper or jewfish reaches a length of 8 feet and can weigh up to 800 lb.
  • They are born and mature as females but have the ability to change to the opposite sex after sexual maturity.
  • They live in small groups containing one male and 3 to 15 females. If the male dies, the largest female will change sex to take over the harem.
  • They can live up to 50 years!
Finally, grouper is considered one of the best fish to serve for many chefs. Many compare the texture being like a cloud! "Sea" it for yourself by stopping in and taking some fresh, local grouper home. We know you'll enjoy it!

Serves four. Recipe and Photo Credit: Laura 17 as published by allrecipes.com.

Ingredients:
  • 4 (6-ounce) fresh Motts Channel Seafood grouper fillets
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1 mango, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (such as Chardonnay)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • white pepper to taste
Instructions:
  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the shallot; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the mango, honey 1/4 cup olive oil, white wine, red pepper flakes, and salt. Reduce heat, and simmer until liquid has reduced slightly, about 10 minutes.
  2. Brush both sides of the grouper fillets with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and season with salt and white pepper.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Arrange grouper fillets on the skillet and cook until the fish is opaque and separates easily under a fork, about 4 minutes on each side. Serve the fish with the mango sauce on top.
