Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes


  • 8 tbsp butter, unsalted and melted, plus extra for greasing
  • black pepper, to taste
  • coarse salt, to taste
  • 16 kalamata olives, pitted
  • 2 lbs potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (you can use a mandolin)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tilefish fillets (12 oz each)
  • ¼ cup parsley, freshly chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C). Butter a 9x13" baking dish and sprinkle black pepper and salt. Take 12 olives, finely chop them, and set aside. Thinly slice the remaining 4 and set aside separately.
  2. Add ⅓ of the potatoes in a single layer, overlapping a little. Brush the potatoes with melted butter and sprinkle black pepper and salt. Add ⅓ of the garlic and ½ of the chopped olives. Repeat for another layer of potatoes, garlic, and olives. Top with the final ⅓ of potatoes, brush with melted butter, and season with black pepper and salt.
  3. Cover the baking dish with foil and roast the potatoes for around 16 minutes or until they just start to color. Remove the foil and continue roasting for another 10 minutes or until the edges develop a pale golden color.
  4. While waiting for the potatoes to cook, prepare your tilefish fillets. Skin and half the fillets. Add remaining butter and garlic to a bowl, and stir to combine. Dip the fillets in the garlic butter mixture, then season with black pepper and salt.
  5. Once potatoes are done, add fillets on top and roast for 10 minutes, or until the fillets are cooked through.
  6. Garnish with sliced olives and chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
