  • 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

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.
