Grouper Fish Tacos Recipe

Grouper Fish Tacos Recipe

We love a good family meal and believe you can never go wrong with fish tacos. If you’re looking for a fun healthy crowd-pleaser, this recipe for Grouper Fish Tacos is exactly what you are looking for.

Grouper Fish Tacos Shot

Red Grouper is a firm textured, flaky, white meat fish known for its versatility and exquisite taste. Here at Sizzlefish, our Red Grouper has a slightly sweeter, milder flavor compared to its black grouper counterpart. That makes our red grouper perfect in this fish taco recipe. The combination of warm smoky spices and the slightly sweet grouper fillets perfectly complement each other. We baked the perfectly seasoned grouper fillets and vegetables for a couple of reasons. We love the crust the seasonings make on the fillets and by roasted the vegetable with the grouper, you get added flavor from the caramelized vegetables. Also, by roasting all of this together on a sheet pan, you get the time to throw the slaw ingredients together without having to watch over the fish while it cooks. Perfect, right?! The plump firmness of the grouper fillets hold up well against the soft corn tortillas. Top that off with the crisp freshness of the slaw…irresistible deliciousness in your hand!
