Grouper, Pesto Whole Wheat Pasta, assorted musrooms and White Asparagus on the Grill

When in the Gulf of Mexico you need to eat local- Bring on the grouper, grilled with a little flavor. Bring on WFM to give lots of veggie ideas. This simple dinner was grilled all at one time thanks to foil packs and some frozen homemade pesto frozen in Oak Creek.

Season the Grouper add olive oil, pack in a foil pouch.

Clean, oil, season the white asparagus pack in a foil packet.

Clean cut musrooms toss in EVO and pack in foil.


Fire up grill and cook for 15-20 minutes until the fish is fully cooked and asparagus is tender.

Cook the pasta, drain, toss in EVO- heat the frozen pesto cubes with the pasta and heat until all pesto is blended, add parm to taste.
