Pesto-Crusted Grouper Recipe

Pesto-Crusted Grouper


Grouper fillet is breaded with a savory pesto crust and seasoned with Greek spices in this quick fish dinner for two.


  • 1 (9 ounce) grouper fillet
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ tablespoon Greek seasoning (such as Cavender's®)
  • 2 teaspoons pesto
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Season grouper fillet with salt and pepper. Mix bread crumbs and Greek seasoning in a small bowl. Rub pesto over the grouper and top with bread crumbs.
  2. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place fillet in the skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Carefully turn over and cook until fillet is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn over once more, being careful to leave the panko breading in place. Split fillet in half for 2 servings.
