Mediterranean Roasted Tautog

In this reci​pe, tautog is simmered and roasted in a Mediterranean style sauce of freshly chopped tomatoes, spices, herbs, capers and golden raisins.  

Ryan and I really enjoyed this dish - it is heavenly! Plus what could be better than enjoying a meal from something caught locally on Cape Cod?

This recipe also works for halibut, swordfish, striped bass, bluefish, shrimp or chicken, so even if you can't find any tautog, you can still enjoy this delicious sauce.

Cooking Video

This week Ryan and I decided to have some fun and attempt filming a video as I prepared and cooked the tautog.

We'll get better at doing this with more practice, but you can watch some of the cooking action by clicking below! 🍽

The recipe worked great for us, but cooking (like fishing) can be a challenge. Good luck with your cooking and please let us know how things go if you give this recipe a try!

  1. We made this last night using some BSB we caught this spring. It was quite incredible. The flavors are really terrific. I made 50% more sauce for 4 fillets and that was perfect, 18min in the oven. I’ll send you a picture. It was our best preparation of BSB yet!

    1. I’m so glad to hear you liked it! It reminds me that I need to make this again too, it’s definitely one of our favorites! Good to know you made more sauce – more is always better anyways to soak up with some bread!

  2. Hi Lauren. I tried this recipe the other day using cod fish instead of tautog. It was delicious. Thanks.

    1. So happy to hear that! Thanks for trying my recipe 🙂

  3. I made this with striped bass and it was tremendous. It’s an incredible mix of flavors and so easy. I highly recommend it.
