METHOD Sweet Potato Custard:

Preheat oven to 325º degrees. In a medium bowl combine sweet potato and milk, blending well. Add sugar, egg yolks, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix thoroughly. Pour mixture into ramekins and bake for 20-30mins., or until inserted knife comes out clean.

METHOD Grouper:

Season grouper fillets. In a large skillet, heat butter until hot, place fish in pan and sear until golden brown. Remove from pan. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and sauté. Turn fish and return to pan. Place into oven for 5-7 mins., or until fish has reached required doneness.

METHOD Grouper:

Heat stock, while whisking or using a hand blender slowly add oil. This action will create foam to form on top of the liquid. Scoop off the foam and garnish dish
