Jerk-Rubbed Grilled Grouper
Recipe: Grilled Jerk Grouper


  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, plus additional wedges for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon bottled or dry jerk seasoning*
  • 2 teaspoons fresh chopped thyme leaves (if not used in jerk), plus additional sprigs for garnish
  • 2 pounds grouper fillets (1-1 1/2-inch thick)


  1. Combine lime juice, oil, garlic, jerk seasoning and thyme and rub over grouper. Let marinate one hour, refrigerated, then remove from refrigeration and bring to room temperature.
  2. Prepare a gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Oil grill grates and grill grouper 7-10 minutes on each side, depending on thickness of fillet, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Garnish with lime wedges and thyme sprigs and serve.

*Traditional jerk seasonings should include allspice, hot peppers (scotch bonnet), onion, ginger, cinnamon, thyme and pepper. Add kosher salt to taste if not used in purchased jerk seasoning.

Active time (including grill time): 30 minutes

Marinate time: 1 hour

Number of servings (yield): 3-4
