  1. Grouper Fillets: 4 fillets (6-8 ounces each)

  2. Fresh Herbs: 1/2 cup, a mix of parsley, cilantro, and dill (finely chopped)

  3. Garlic: 3 cloves, minced

  4. Lemon Zest: Zest of 1 lemon

  5. Panko Breadcrumbs: 1/2 cup

  6. Olive Oil: 3 tablespoons

  7. Lemon Juice: Juice of 1 lemon

  8. Salt and Pepper: To taste


  1. Preheat the Oven:

    • Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This temperature ensures a perfect, crispy crust on your grouper.

  1. Prepare the Herb Crust:

    • In a bowl, combine the finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, cilantro, and dill) with minced garlic, lemon zest, and Panko breadcrumbs. Mix them well to create a flavorful herb crust.

  1. Season the Grouper:

    • Pat the grouper fillets dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

    • Drizzle olive oil over the fillets and season both sides with salt and pepper.

  1. Coat with Herb Crust:

    • Press each grouper fillet into the herb and breadcrumb mixture, ensuring an even and generous coating on both sides. Gently press the crust onto the fillets to make it adhere.

  1. Pan-Sear for a Perfect Crust:

    • In an oven-safe skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat.

    • Sear the grouper fillets for 2-3 minutes on each side until the herb crust turns golden brown.

  1. Finish in the Oven:

    • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes or until the grouper is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.

  1. Drizzle with Lemon:

    • Just before serving, squeeze fresh lemon juice over the herb-crusted grouper to enhance the flavors.

  1. Serve and Enjoy:

    • Plate the grouper fillets, and perhaps add a side of roasted vegetables or a light salad for a well-rounded meal.
