First of all, there is nothing better than fresh fish. But, itís better to have fish from the freezer, than to have no fish at all. When cooking frozen fish, it is nice to have a recipe such as this where herbs are added to return the fish to that just-caught texture and taste.

6 (6-8 ounce) grouper fillets
1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
¼ cup minced garlic
1 cup coarsely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp tomato paste
⅛ tsp red pepper flakes
3 tbsps lemon juice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste
granulated garlic to taste

Preheat broiler and cover a large baking pan or broiler pan with aluminum foil. In bowl of a food processor, add cilantro, garlic and parsley. Pulse 5-6 times or until seasonings are puréed. Add cumin, tomato paste, red pepper flakes and lemon juice and pulse 2-3 times to blend well. While processor is running, add olive oil in a slow, steady stream and blend 1 minute. Season to taste using salt, pepper and granulated garlic. When ready to cook, rinse and pat fish dry. Season lightly using salt, pepper and granulated garlic. Arrange fish in a single layer in baking pan and top with an equal portion of herb and garlic mixture. Broil fish, 4-5 inches from heat source, 6-8 minutes or until cooked through. Take care not to burn the herb topping. Serve 1 fillet in center of a warm serving plate and drizzle with any excess oil from baking pan.
