Grouper fillets with orange and basil - Venetian homecooking recipe

After all the Christmas meat and salami, it's really time for some fish! This recipe is really refreshing, delicate and good for kids and parents...

For 4 persons:

  • 4 grouper fillets
  • juice of 1 orange and 1/2 lemon
  • basil leaves (about 12)
  • olive oil
  • salt

Press the orange and lemon to obtain juice. Heat up a little olive oil in a large, non-sticky pan, then gently lay the grouper fillets and brown them on both sides, being careful not to break them. Salt on both sides. Pour the orange and the lemon juice and let the fish cook in order to reduce the sauce a little bit. Serve hot (here, with roast potatoes) with chopped basil leaves. Good!
