Seared Grouper with Zucchini Tomato Sauté

This is a beautiful, light and refreshing dinner that is perfect for a late summer or early fall evening. Grouper is a delightful, light fish. Tomatoes are loaded with vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, and potassium. Tomatoes are heart healthy and help prevent cancer. Zucchini contains zero fat, and is high in water and fiber. This summer squash also contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.
