Floribbean grilled Grouper with a boat-load of Yellowtail Snapper Ceviche

I don't always drink beer, but when I DO... I prefer Dos Equis. I had to grow a seven day stubble beard just to be able to summon the mojo to give this Floribbean dish justice. But no games... no hoodwinking or bamboozling here... it's straight to the food.

Ingreeds:

Ceviche:
1/2 # yellowtail snapper cut into 1/2" cubes
1/2 red onion chopped fine
1 green onion
2 plum tomatoes
1/2 cucumber
4 limes juiced
2 lemons juiced
1/2 cup orange juice
2 serranos sliced thin w/ seeds
1/2 tsp kosher salt
Mix and let marinate for 1 hour. Mix occasionally.
~ a hand full of chopped cilantro (add and mix directly prior to serving)

serve in cucumber canoe

Grilled grouper:
1# black grouper fillet

Grouper dry rubbed with...
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground garlic
1/4 tsp powdered orange habanero (last year's crop is the best vintage)
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp paprika

Rub grouper fillet on both sides and wrap in plastic. Let cure in the fridge for a half hour... or until it stops raining.
Hose liberally with olive oil right before placing on searing hot grill. This WILL flame! Grouper like being tickled by fire. They HATE cinnamon. Immediately turn grill down to medium heat. Cook ~ 4-5 minutes first side. Flip once and grill other side ~ 3-4 minutes. DON'T play with your meat when it's on the grill!

Plate grouper on fire roasted red bell pepper. Drizzle with Marie Sharp's white label (or hot sauce of choice). Serve with saffron rice and boat-load of yellowtail snapper ceviche. Add foo' as seems fit.

That sure does look purrty Sum, but why the fishing poles in the background and the store-bought fish? :lol: Either way that looks like a plate of goodness I would like to bury my face in. Rock on SoFlo.
 

That's it, say goodbye to your precious bunnies....

Werd FD. I wolfed down the grouper in the forefront of the pics. It was so intensely delicious it put me in a trance and I barely remembered to keep drinking my beer(s). The other half of the fillet has your name on it. Good luck with the timing tomorrow. I wanna see some manatee steaks on the grill!
yup

Fishies must not have been biting today, huh?

I have a 459 pound Manney ready to go, but I don't have any gas for my chainsaw. Hence the time Crunch. He is resting comfortably in my pool until I figure out what to do.

Thanks J. Had to hit up the local fishmonger since I seemed to be trying to catch fish on their day off. The only thing biting were pinfish... notorious bait-stealers down here. Frustration was ended in an hour when my dozen shrimp ran out. The poles in the background.?. :beer:
yup

Pulled Salmon Sliders
(with Homemade Chipotle Mayo, Avocado, and Pickled Red Onions Infused with Ginger)


1. Marinate the salmon (this was a beer-based marinade with chile peppers, mustard, and spices).
2. Prepare pickled red onions with one large red onion cut into rings, red wine vinegar, fresh ginger, two teaspoons of "Sugar In The Raw", and sea salt. Simmer until soft and put aside and let pickle.
3. Prepare homemade chipotle mayo with chipoles in adobo (diced) and mayonaise.
4. Smoke the salmon for 3 hours over a hickory/oak/apple wood combo (last hour in foil with beer marinade).
5. Let it rest a bit, then shred by hand. (Heck it even looks like pulled pork. Look at that bark!)
6. Toast Martin's Potato Rolls (the small ones for sliders) on grill.
7. Assemble sandwich with pulled salmon, chipotle mayo, avocado, and pickled red onions.

Take a look! They were awesome. I didn't take a pic with the top on i ate them :oops:.

:lol:

Good show THP! Pulled salmon is hilarious, but it looks fantastic. That smoked salmon would have made a hell of a fish dip! I bet it was better as a slider.
yup
