This Grey Tilefish Recipe is made with tilefish, flour, garlic, butter and lemon slices, and lemon juice and cooked to perfection.
This Grey Tilefish recipe only requires ONE large deep pan, which is why these flavors come together seamlessly as everything cooks together. It can turn even the most flavorless fish into the most enriched fish. All you need is a little bit of lemon, a touch of butter, and garlic!
What are some great substitutes for this dish?
I would honestly try serving this recipe with orzo or a pasta. As for a nice veggie, broccoli rabe, kale, mustard greens or collard greens. If not, asparagus would be easy and delicious as well.
How to cook a delicious Grey Tilefish
In a large deep pan, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Dredge the tilefish in flour, salt and pepper as needed. When the oil starts shimmering, add the tilefish and cook about 4 minutes per side. Flour tends to make the fish burn faster, so the more oil the better! If you noticed the fish browning too fast, you can lower to medium heat. Transfer the tilefish to a plate.
Using the same pan, melt the butter and place the lemon slices into the pan. Stir and caramelize the lemon for 1 minute per side. Remove the lemon slices and pour in the lemon juice. Return the tilefish back into the pan and spoon the sauce over and over onto the tilefish. Serve the fish with the lemon slices on top.
