Griller Grouper Sandwich

While this definitely fits more in the "grilling" category than the type of traditional hard core barbecue that I usually cook, I do enjoy a grilled grouper sandwich from time to time. As luck would have it though, when I order a grouper sandwich at a local restaurant I might not always be getting the "real" deal.

It seems that some restaurants who were charging premium prices for grouper were actually serving a fake grouper. But, that may have been a blessing in disguise because some published reports claim that due to the level of mercury contamination in grouper, it's not healthy to eat it more than a couple times per month.

To read more about the "great grouper controversy", visit the St. Petersburg Times newspaper.

It turns out all this fake grouper has improved the overall quantity of "real" grouper stocks at your favorite fishing spots.
