Florida Seafood Recipe

Fresh Florida Grouper and Vegetable Bake

1 large grouper fillet
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small zucchini, chopped in thin rounds
1 carrot, chopped in small rounds
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 yellow pepper, chopped
1 medium-sized onion, chopped
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 1/2 cups tomato juice
1 tablespoon brown or white sugar
1 lemon, fresh squeezed
  fresh cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
3/4 teaspoon dried sweet basil
1 teaspoon natural sea salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare the cleaned fish in the middle of a baking pan, sprinkle and spread around the olive oil on booth sides of the fish. Then squeeze the lemon on booth sides of the fish, and sprinkle with the cracked black pepper. Sautee the chopped vegetables in the canola oil just enough to soften a little and set aside. In a small cup, mix the oregano, basil, seasoned sea salt and spread over the inside and outside of the fish. Pour the sautéed vegetables over the fish, and in a bowl, mix the sugar, ketchup and tomato juice and pour over the fish. Cover and place in the oven until it is done all the way- the flesh should be soft and flaky. Do not overcook. A general rule for cooking fish is 10 minutes per inch of thickness.
