Grouper Cheek Burgers
Here’s an easy recipe that I made at the beach. In case you don’t know what at the beach looks like, here’s a picture:
I bought one of the specials at the fish monger near the beach. It was grouper cheeks. I had no idea what grouper cheeks were or that groupers even had cheeks. Apparently, its the meat that is not the filet and is the meat from the fish’s face.
They said it tasted the same as the filet would and that pretty much about sums it up.
I grilled it with some blackening seasoning until the fish started to get flakey and put the cooked patties or filets or jowels whatever you’d call them on top of the peppers that I was roasting too.
I was going to use the peppers like a bun, but it would have been a little too over powering. So I ate it like an open faced sandwich.
Grouper cheeks were about 3/4 the price of the actual filets. This was a meal that cost me well under ten bucks. All it took was a little bit of effort to find a cheaper cut of meat.
