Mediterranean-Style Baked Grouper with Tomatoes & Olives (Recipe)


✅ 1 1/2 lb grouper fillet (or a similar fish)

✅ Kosher salt

✅ 1 1/2 tbsp ground cumin

✅ 1 tbsp dry oregano

✅ 1 tsp sweet paprika

✅ 1/2 tsp black pepper

✅ 4 large garlic cloves, minced

✅ Juice of 1 large lemon, more for later

✅ Extra virgin olive oil

✅ 6 to 8 oz cherry tomatoes, halved

✅ 6 to 8 pitted kalamata olives, sliced

✅ Chopped fresh dill (about 1/4 oz or so)


1️⃣ Heat oven to 400 degrees F.

2️⃣ Pat the fish dry and season with salt on both sides. In a small bowl, combine the spices (cumin, oregano, paprika, and black pepper), and season the fish with the spice mixture on both sides.

3️⃣ Place seasoned fish in a lightly-oiled baking dish. Add minced garlic on top, then add lemon juice and a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Arrange cherry tomatoes and olives on top of the fish fillets.

4️⃣ Bake in heated oven for 12 to 13 minutes, or until the fish is opaque and easily flakes with a fork.

5️⃣ Remove from heat and add fresh dill (or your favorite herb).
