For the butter

  • 2 Tbsp Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp Lime zest
  • 1 tsp Fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of salt


  • In a microwave safe dish, mix the orange juice, lime juice and honey. Microwave for 10-20 seconds until slightly warm to allow the honey to melt and whisk again.
  • Place the grouper into the marinade, flesh side down, and marinate for at least 4 hours - but 8 is best.
  • Once marinated, pre heat your grill to medium high.
  • Take the grouper out of the marinade and rub with oil. Then, sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne pepper and salt.
  • Grill the grouper, skin side down for 4 minutes, then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. Mine was perfect at 9 minutes and it was about 3/4 inch thick. You want the internal temperature to be 145 degrees F
  • While the grouper cooks, mix the butter, lime juice and lime zest. Add a pinch of salt and stir
  • Spread the butter over the cooked fish.
