CG, my first experience with grouper was wonderful. When the plate arrived, the filet looked a little small, but it was just right. It has a mild flavor, but is "meaty" enough to be filling. I finished my meal feeling satisfied, but not "stuffed." I like that. My favorite fish is Red Snapper, also from the Gulf, but I am now also a "grouper groupie," LOL

A few decades ago, grouper was briefly available in a fish store near where I lived. Nice thick, sweet filets. In my travels I've had it in restaurants, but it didn't even seem like the same fish, as the filets were much, much smaller, and not as sweet. Sounds like you were able to get the good stuff.

Buying fish these days is tough, whether in a store or at a restaurant. You have to go to a really reliable store or restaurant, or your grouper, snapper, whatever, could be some other fish that is cheaper.

But, I asked if the grouper was fresh and local last night, and was assured that it was. I had no reason to doubt it.

We had grilled chicken thighs seasoned with Penzeys Northwoods, grilled corn and caprese salad. The chicken was amazing - I haven't used this blend before, but it's delicious. Sadly, the corn, bought from the farmers market this morning, was not as good as what we've been getting from Kroger. It was really starchy.

Here's the cake recipe folks. I made some changes from the original one I posted long ago.


Fresh Peach Cake


Preheat oven to 350 degrees, spray a 9x13 pan
2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs, beaten
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
5 medium size fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

In a large bowl, whisk together the first four ingredients. With a hand mixer, blend in the eggs, sugar and oil. Fold in the sliced peaches and nuts. Pour into the prepared 9x13 pan and bake for 40-45 min.

While the cake is baking make the Vanilla Butter Sauce:

1 stick of real butter (salted)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated canned milk (the small can)
1 tsp. high quality vanilla

Bring all but the vanilla to a boil, and simmer for 3 min. Add the vanilla.

Slowly spoon the sauce all over the only slightly cooled cake.
Serve with ice cream or whipped cream on top.
