Tilefish, grey

Caulolatilus microps

Also called: Blueline Tilefish

Grey tilefish are found in the western Atlantic from Campeche, Mexico, to the coast of Maryland, including the eastern Gulf of Mexico. NOAA does report catches as far north as Maine and as far west as Texas.

Like other species of tilefish, grey tilefish feed on a variety of invertebrates like crabs, shrimp, and snails which contribute to their recognizable and delicious flavor. Tilefish cook up firm and tender - pan sear or saute, grill or broil, roast, add to soups or pop into a brine and get it in your smoker - grey tilefish is a fantastically versatile fish and a great buy to support regional fishermen.
