Grouper with Citrus Tequila Salsa

The flavors of Florida inspired me to create this dish. Fresh grapefruit and orange, creamy avocado and the crunch of sweet white onion make for a light and refreshing accompaniment to grouper. A splash of tequila is a fun and feisty addition, but if you’d rather not use alcohol, you can leave it out and the salsa will still be delicious. If your market doesn’t have good-looking grouper, sub any firm, white fish.

Ingredients
 

  • 1 ½ pounds fresh grouper
  • ½ medium grapefruit
  • 1 medium orange
  • 2 tablespoons white tequila
  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon agave syrup, or use honey
  • ¼ cup white onion, chopped
  • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 small avocado, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle powder mixed with ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 375. Place the grouper on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and pat the chipotle/salt mixture on top of the fish and set aside (in the refrigerator if not baking for more than 15 minutes or so).
  • Working over a bowl, peel the orange and grapefruit and separate the segments. Cut the grapefruit segments into 3-4 pieces and place in the bowl, and cut the orange segments into 2-3 pieces. Add the tequila, vinegar, syrup, onion, avocado and cilantro and stir. Season with ½ teaspoon salt and pinch of allspice.
  • Roast the fish until cooked through, 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of your filet. Transfer to a serving platter, or individual plates, top with the salsa and serve immediately.
