Groper is a low calorie fresh water fish that is high in protein and many other vitamins and minerals, including large amounts of vitamin D, iron, magnesium and B-vitamins, all vital for healthy function of the body. Barbecuing is a great technique used to cook fish, it produces the most melt-in-the-mouth flakes with a beautiful smokey flavour. Make sure to wrap the fish in foil to keep it extra soft and juicy. Serve the groper with a bowl of roasted potatoes, salad and a glass of something chilled. You can order whole fish online today with Manettas Seafood Market and have it delivered to your door!
