I found a recipe through Pinterest from The Devil’s Punchbowl. It was for a baked salmon and had very few ingredients. It looked really good, and I love salmon. While visiting Travis, we decided to try it. He had been deep sea fishing with his dad the week before and brought home tons of fish. We decided to try the recipe with grouper instead of salmon. We didn’t think it would make much of a difference, but maybe it did.
All we needed was the fish, salt and pepper, a lemon and butter. We sliced up the lemon and placed the slices on a piece of aluminum foil. We set the grouper on top. We sliced the butter and put it on top of the fish. Then we added salt and pepper. The recipe said to fold up the aluminum foil tightly and bake the fish for 25 minutes at 300 degrees. Here’s the problem we had with this recipe (and maybe it’s just because we used a different kind of fish), it wasn’t anywhere near baked after 25 minutes. We baked it for another 10 minutes. It still wasn’t done. So we unwrapped the foil and baked it for another 10 minutes. Eventually, it was done. It was really good, so the recipe worked. It was just that we had to bake it much longer than we thought. We were so hungry by the time it was done that I forgot to take a picture of the finished product! But here’s the recipe if you want to try it out for yourself:
- 1 grouper filet (or other fish)
- 1 lemon
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt and pepper
- Lay out a large piece of aluminum foil. Slice the lemon and lay the slices inside the foil. Lay the filet of fish on top. Slice the butter and lay on top of the fish. Salt and pepper the fish. Bake at 300 degrees for 40 minutes or until done.
