Season grouper with salt, pepper, and paprika. In a medium-sized skillet, heat butter and olive oil over medium heat. Sear fillet on both sides, cooking until fish is done throughout; be careful not overcook. Remove from heat and set aside.
Slice avocado and squeeze lemon juice over avocado to prevent browning.
