Here is an excellent recipe for Grouper & Sea Scallops With Chablis Dill Sauce. It is one of our favorites from Carteret Catch. The mission of the Carteret Catch program is to sustain the livelihood and heritage of the Carteret County fishing industry through public marketing and education.
Carteret Catch represents a joint venture between the county’s fishing industry and local restaurants to advertise seasonal seafood caught by Carteret County fishermen. The goal is to once again make fishing a viable lifestyle and preserve a culture that characterizes the central coastal region of North Carolina.

Blend in softened butter with wire whip prior to serving (optional).
