Spicy Grouper


  • olive oil
  • 2 grouper filets (or other white fish such as sole or tilapia)
  • 1 purple spring onion or 1/2 shallot, diced (about 2 Tbsp)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp ras el hanout*
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. Saute onion in olive oil over medium heat for about 4 minutes; add lemon juice, stir, and when bubbling add fish.
  2. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and ras al hanout. Cook about 2 minutes, then flip fish, cover, and turn off heat underneath. Let sit about 5 minutes and serve.

*Ras el hanout is a Moroccan spice combination. If you can’t find it in the grocery store, you can order it here or make your own version by combining whatever you have of the following spices in diminishing amounts: paprika, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, coriander, turmeric, black pepper, cardamom, allspice, mace, nutmeg, cloves, and saffron.
