Dish of the day: grouper tempura, banana guacamole

Grouper is one of those incredibly versatile fish tarnished with a certain historical bias. It was a poor-man’s fish in many parts of the world, and though it no longer carries that stigma single-handedly, it remains severely underrated!

This dish, from the fantastic blog Ideas in food, handles grouper in such a natural way that – like all good dishes – it makes you ask, Why isn’t this done all the time? Well, now you can do it too: bread the grouper with your favourite tempura batter (or even just egg & panko), and fry it swiftly to make a thick, moist tempura treat.

The pairing of smoked paprika, cocoa (or versions thereof) before battering are – in my opinion – brilliant, and as for the banana guacamole…well, I didn’t try that, but I hope you will – and let me know how it turns out.
