Did you know that the Golden Tilefish is the flagship fish for Coastal Seafoods? It was the fish that started a seafood revolution in the Twin Cities when back in the early 1980's it served as the first fish sold by Coastal founder, Suzanne Weinstein.
We've come a long way since then, but that doesn't mean that when the opporunity arrises, we don't want to pay homage to our roots, so we've gone and given the Golden Tilefish some topshelf treatment. Dusted and seared with a lavish porcini mushroom powder, this fish truly shines. Serve alongside a beautiful mushroom risotto and some roasted asparagus or some brocollini and maybe a few crispy scallions and you've got yourself a fish-dish worthy of celebration!

Coat the non-skin side of the fillets using the porcini powder
