Grouper is known for its stout body, large mouth and distinctive spotted color. While size can vary greatly, it is not uncommon for Grouper to attain lengths of over 3 feet and weigh over 200 pounds. This fish has a mild but very unique flavor, reminiscent of a cross between bass and halibut. Its firm white flesh boasts large flakes with a high oil and moisture content. This makes Grouper an extremely versatile fish that can be used for a broad range of recipes and cooking methods, such as grilling, frying, baking, broiling and poaching. It is also excellent in soups or chowders.
