Grilled Grouper with Watermelon Salsa

Grilled Grouper with Watermelon Salsa

A refreshing take on salsa acts as a fantastic side for this grilled grouper recipe


  • 4 (4-ounce) grouper fillets
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
  • 2 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
  • 1/2 English cucumber (chopped)
  • 1 small jalapeno pepper (seeded and minced)
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar


Preheat grill to between 350 degrees and 400 degrees (medium-high). Sprinkle grouper with pepper and a 1/2 teaspoon salt. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Grill fish, covered with grill lid. Cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or just until fish begins to flake when poked with the tip of a sharp knife and is opaque in center.

Combine chopped watermelon, Kalamata olives, cucumber, jalapeno, red onion, balsamic vinegar, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Serve with grilled fish.
