Grilled Grouper Madeira


6 grouper filets, 8 ounces each

1/2 cup No-Stick Grilling Marinade for seafood (page xxx)

1 Tbl kosher salt

1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground

2 tablespoons clarified butter

4 cups mushrooms, sliced

1 12–ounce cans artichoke hearts, drained

3 tablespoons garlic, minced

4 ounces Madeira wine

1 cup Lemon Meunière

1 1/2 cups green onions, sliced


Rub the fish filets with the no-stick marinade and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Season the fish with the kosher salt and black pepper.

Prepare the grill. Cook the fish over direct-high heat until opaque in the center, about 8-10 minutes. Turn the fish once while cooking. Do not overcook.

In a sautee pan, cook mushrooms in clarified butter until tender. Add artichoke hearts, green onions, and garlic and continue to cook for 3–4 minutes. Deglaze with Madeira and reduce wine by one-half. Remove from heat and add lemon meuniere sauce.

Top fish with the sauce and garnish with lemon and fresh parsley.

Yield: 6 servings

After several failed attempts, and facing a cookbook deadline, I finally worked up a recipe for smoked crab dip, which is excellent, though my wife still prefers Harbor Docks smoked tuna dip.
