All About Grouper

At Foremost Seafood, we pride ourselves on carrying the freshest fish possible for you each and every day. Whether you’re a wholesale or retail customer, we make sure that everyone, including ourselves, receives the best of the best. We currently carry Grouper from the Caribbean Islands and if you order this fish at Foremost, remember it’s on island time. Grouper, at current market price, runs $24.99/lb (price subject to change).

Fun Fact: Did you know that the Goliath Grouper is known to eat sharks? Don’t worry though, Foremost Seafood has removed the dangers so that you can easily enjoy your meal without the worry of it attacking you.

Cooking Grouper

Grouper is a very mild fish which makes it versatile when creating a recipe. When cooked, it has a nice white flaky texture to it. Many people have noted that Grouper has a sweet underlying taste to it with very little “fishy” flavor. Because of its texture and taste, you can easily cook Grouper by baking, broiling, frying, poaching, steaming, and grilling it. The possibilities are endless when it comes to this fresh fish. You have the option of leaving the skin on or having it removed and for the breaded recipe that we have provided to you, it’s better to have the skin removed.

Fresh Breaded Grouper Recipe

We’ve had a few customers come in and ask us for Grouper recipes so we asked Denise (one of the new hires) to create something up that everyone can enjoy. She has mentioned that her husband isn’t much of a seafood eater so she decided to bread it to make it easier on his taste buds. She used Andy’s Red Fish Breading which we conveniently carry in house. On the package, it provides the instructions for use of the breading however, Denise modified the instructions just a bit which is what we are presenting to you.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 6-8 minutes

Total Time: 16-18 minutes


  • 1lb. Grouper (Recommended in this recipe but not required. The breading can be used on various fish that we currently carry.)

  • 1 Egg

  • ½ Cup of Milk

  • 2 tbs. Olive Oil

  • 2 tbs. Butter

Cooking Directions

  1. Mix egg and milk together. Place Andy’s Fish Breading in separate bowl.

  2. Dip cleaned Grouper in the egg then dip it into the milk. Next cover the fish with Andy’s Breading.

  3. Let sit for about 5 minutes to set

  4. To pan fry, place oil and butter in a pan over medium high heat.

  5. Place the breaded Grouper into the pan and let sit for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

  6. Remove and place on a paper towel to remove excess grease.

Now that your Grouper has finished cooking, you can enjoy it as is or maybe add a little bit of lemon juice for a nice tang. Also great as a Grouper sandwich. Either way, enjoy! The breading on the fish didn’t mask the flavor of the Grouper, but rather enhanced the taste.

Denise Stated, “I loved that the breading stayed on the fish rather than flake off like many other types of breading that I've used in the past.”
