Grouper is related to sea bass, which makes an excellent substitute if you can't find any fresh grouper.


2cups fresh strawberries, hulled and diced
1tablespoon minced fresh mint
2tablespoons fresh lime juice
1tablespoon brown sugar
1/2teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
6 boneless, skinless grouper fillets (6 to 8 ounces each)
1tablespoon olive oil
1tablespoon fresh lime juice


  1. To make the relish, combine all relish ingredients in a medium glass bowl and toss gently with a rubber spatula. Let sit at room temperature 1 to 2 hours, stirring occasionally, to let the flavors blend.
  2. To prepare the fish, heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-high (375F).
  3. Arrange fish fillets on a large platter. Combine olive oil and lime juice in a small bowl and brush on both sides of fillets. Oil the grill grate. Place fillets on grate and cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish is opaque and just flakes with a fork.
  4. Place fish on dinner plates and spoon relish on top.
