Roasted Fish with Lemon and Garlic


Fast weeknight recipe for roasted lemony fish that gets dinner on the table fast.


  • 1 pound grouper fillets
  • Flour
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled but left whole
  • 2 lemons
  • Handful parsley leaves, chopped


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Place some flour onto a plate and dredge the fish lightly in the flour on both sides.  Lay the fillets on a work surface. Season both sides with salt and pepper.

In a medium pan, heat a few tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil.  Place the fillets in the pan.  Saute them until golden brown on one side, flip and brown on the other. While the fillets are sauteeing, toss in the butter and cloves of garlic.  Using a spoon, baste the fish as the butter melts.

Once browned, slice one of the lemons into thin slices. Top the fish with the lemon. Baste again and place in the oven. Cook until the fish is cooked through, 5-10 minutes.  Remove from the oven. Plate. Cut the remaining lemon in half and squeeze over the fish. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve!
