About Tilefish

This colorful heavy-bodied fish is found along the eastern seaboard from Nova Scotia to the Gulf of Mexico. A deep water fish from the canyons of the continental shelf, it is considered superior to shallow water species: a diet of red crab gives tilefish a firm texture and a moist sweet taste.

Classic Tilefish Seviche

Deep-water fish are the choice for serviche, as they are less likely than shallow water species to have occurring parasites.Fish must “cook” in citrus for at least 8 hours, so prepare fish the day before, or in the morning.

• ¾ lb. Skinned tilefish, cut into ½ inch pieces
• ¾ cup fresh lemon or limejuice
• ¼ cup orange juice
• 1 small red onion, sliced thin
• 1/3-cup fresh chopped cilantro

 

 

Toss chopped fish, onion slices, cilantro, and citrus juices. Marinate for at least 8 hours, turning occasionally. Fish will be opaque in color when “cooked”.Toss with one optional addition and serve on a bed of romaine lettuce. Serves two.
