1x1.trans Grouper with Almond Parsley Pesto


  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley (leaves and stems)
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup EVOO
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (or water)
  • 4 grouper fillets
  • 1 tablespoon EVOO


  1. Place almonds in a food processor and pulse a few times. Add parsley, cheese, and oil. Blend until thickly pureed. Add lemon juice/water until desired consistency is achieved. You want it to be thick so it holds up on top of the fish.
  2. Heat remaining tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook for 3 minutes on one side. Flip and top with pesto. Cook another 3-5 minutes until cooked through.

  4. I love using pesto when I cook fish, and your Grouper with Almond Parsley Pesto looks lovely. I really like using different ingredients than the normal basil and pine nut combinations for pesto, and your Almond Parsley variety sounds great!

  5. Looks delicious and healthy!

  6. The almond parsley pesto looks tasty. What a lovely pairing with the grouper!
