Tilefish live at the bottom of the ocean, hiding in crevices and ledges waiting for lunch to swim by. They have even been know to burrow their own holes and channels if they can’t find hard structure elsewhere.

This white fish has earned the nickname “poor man’s grouper” for good reason. The flavor is mild and sweet, with a firm texture. This fish is a wonderful gateway for novice chefs looking to explore new species. It is easy to prep and tastes familiar to many customers.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

“The tilefish collars were amazing! I used the recipe from Bon Appetit! I made a cabbage, carrot, and ginger stir fry to go under them. Thanks for the inspiration and superior products!”
