THE FISH - Golden Tilefish grow quite large, with market sizes ranging from 10-20 lbs. They produce a beautiful "Baseball" cut with a gorgeous yellow dotted edible skin. Golden Tilefis feed almost exclusively on Cra, Shrimp, Clams, and other shellfish. This translates to a very sweet and moist flesh that cooks to a paper white. The cooked flesh flakes to a large, almost crab like, piece. Perfect for almost any cooked preparation.
