This buttery tilefish recipe is juicy and delicious. The tilefish fillet is pan-seared then cooked in a lemon garlic butter sauce until tender and juicy. The rich butter sauce keeps the fish moist and flavorful. This easy seafood dinner can be ready in 10 minutes and pairs well with veggies on the side or as is.


  • 1 tilefish fillet

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 1 clove garlic

  • ⅓ cup chopped green onions

  • ½ lemon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • freshly ground black pepper


  1. Season fish with salt and pepper. Melt butter in the pan.

  2. Add tilefish fillet and chopped green onions to the pan and sear over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes.

  3. Flip the fillet and add chopped garlic and lemon juice to the butter.

  4. Scoop some butter on to the fish while cooking (tip the pan if needed).

  5. If fillets are very thick, cover the pan with the lid for 1 minute.
