Hey, Foodies! Happy Friday!
My husband had Onion Crusted Grouper at a restaurant last year and thought ‘we’ could do better ‘ourselves’. I knew he wasn’t going to help, but challenge accepted. I did a little research, learned some new things – sour cream on seafood? Yeah. Turns out it’s a secret ingredient in plenty of seafood dips and dishes. Who knew? – and created this recipe which I was reluctant to taste at first but found surprisingly delicious. I’ve made it a half dozen times now and it’s quickly become a favorite!
A tasty meal for two in under 30 minutes!
1 Grouper fillet, about 1 pound
1/3 cup cream cheese (I like chive flavored)
1 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 package crispy onions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with spray oil. Rinse and dry Grouper fillet.
In a measuring cup or bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, lemon juice, onion powder and garlic powder together until well blended.
Spread a thin coat of the mixture on one side of the fillet, flip, then spread the remaining mixture on the second side. You want a nice layer of the mixture, but if you apply it too thickly it will melt your onion crust off while baking.
Crush the crispy onions and coat the top side of the Grouper in a thick layer.
Place baking sheet in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, adjusting time for a thicker/larger or smaller piece of fish.
And that’s it! If you try it, please let me know if you like it!
Check back next Friday for another Foodie Flavor!
