Grouper is a saltwater fish commonly fished with a hook and line from coral reefs in temperate waters like those found on the coast of Florida. Grouper is a great choice for the health-conscious eater. Four ounces of grouper is 110 calories and contains an impressive 23 grams of protein with just two grams of fat. Baking grouper with a small amount of healthy olive oil will allow you to enjoy a tasty meal without sacrificing your health.
