Grouper are large, slow moving fish. They can grow up to 6 feet long and 30 years old. They are hermaphrodites and change sex throughout their life. They like to hang out in holes and crevices, ambushing fish, crabs, and shrimp that swims past.

The meat is very firm, white, and flaky. Its mild flavor makes it ideal for recipes with minimal ingredients that let the taste of the fish shine through. Grouper can be grilled, baked, broiled, steamed, fried… the options are endless!
