Mediterranean Grouper


1-1/4lb. fresh grouper fillet about 1 inch thick, cut into 2 individual serving size pieces
1 lemon juiced
¾ cup large green olives rinsed, and coarsely chopped
2 Tbsp. capers drained and rinsed
4 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. butter
½ cup parsley leaves loosely packed, coarsely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

1.     In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the lemon zest and juice, olives, capers and 3 Tbsp. of olive oil.  Mix and keep warm. Do not boil.

2.     Lightly season fillets with salt and pepper.

3.     Add the remaining Tbsp. of olive oil to a large nonstick sauté pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, place the fillets top-side down in the pan and cook about 3-4 minutes on each side. The fillets should be golden brown on both sides and flake easily when tested with a fork. Do not overcook!

Pour the olive and caper sauce over the fish fillets, garnish with parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
