I doubt it was fixed wrong. Hubby had lived in FL for a while before we were married. He knew a little fish hut on Fort Myers Beach that had perfect fish fresh off the boats, and we each got a lunch there. His was grouper. He loved it. Me, not so much. Maybe "oily" should be replaced by "rich". Maybe I'll try a bite of his again when we vacation at FMB this year. Our biggest problem is finding a new little fish hut - the old one is gone...

Regarding large grouper, those being over 20#, you will most likely find a lot of worms.

Blackened grouper, on a sandwich with roasted garlic tartar sauce is one of the best there is!

I heartily agree with you, Andy. The whole purpose of fish is for it to taste like fish! And don't cover up the taste with sauces etc. Just order something else that you like. Who would eat a steak that didn't taste steaky? LOL

The only time I ate grouper was at a seafood buffet we go to, but they have only had it twice. I loved it, but then I love any fish. It's usually my first choice when eating out. My son had it somewhere local served as a sandwich.

Agreed that was a once in a lifetime catch.

We saw at least 3 grouper that size or larger when we snorkeled off Key West. Amazing. We see a lot of juveniles 2 to 12 inches when we snorkel along the shore in Cozumel. Divers see the bigger guys.

Goliath grouper, I have seen them in a shroud of bait fish, where they were just a shadow like figure in the "mist". These babies were VW Beetle size. This was at the California "wreck", in the Gulf, SW of Naples, FL in 110' to 120'.

Grouper is not a sustainable fish. Here is a recent study on sustainable seafood:

I like Walleye, too. There's a local restaurant that serves it and I used to order it often, but in the past year they have changed the way they prepare it and I don't like it anymore. It used to be cooked darker, like they put it under the broiler, but now it's lighter, swimming in a pool of butter. Not my thing. I have even asked that it be cooked "well done" but was still not happy with it.
