  1. Heat olive oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat.  
  2. Sprinkle salt and pepper on grouper, put into pan. Sauté grouper approximately two minutes (or until a deep golden brown) then flip to other side. Take the pan off the heat.
  3. Drain off the oil and place the pan in a 325° oven for approximately five to seven minutes or until white and flakey throughout.
  4. Finish with room temperature citrus butter, orange segments, chives and almonds.
Citrus Butter:
  1. Use your favorite local butter (Beach Bistro makes their own butter from a local dairy’s cream) and add freshly squeezed citrus of your choice as well as a little of the zest from that citrus. Whisk together.
  2. You may also add in a little of your favorite chopped green herb as well as salt and pepper to taste.
