How to Cook Rockfish 3 Ways

There are many kinds of rockfish. If you should be lucky enough to catch some of this fish, here are three super easy ways to cook them up. One pound of rockfish can make about two to three servings. Nothing gets easier than the microwave, so let's start there.

1. Microwave Method

Ingredients

  • Rockfish filets
  • 1 tablespoon oil or butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup salsa (any type)
  • Shredded cheese, colby is good for this
  • Sour cream (optional)
  • Guacamole (optional)
  • Tortillas, warmed

Directions

  1. Place your rockfish filet or filets in a microwave-safe dish.
  2. Drizzle the fish with melted butter. Add sea salt and cracked pepper to taste. Top with one cup of salsa.
  3. Microwave on high for 7-8 minutes or until your fish flakes.
  4. Serve with your warm tortillas and cheese, sour cream, and guacamole if you like. This makes a great meal.

2. Pan-Fried Method

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • Garlic salt
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • Lemon wedges (optional)
  • Tartar sauce (optional)

Optional Seasonings

If you'd like to spice up your fish with more herbs, try any combination of these herbs: tarragon, dill, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, and oregano.

Directions

  1. Coat your fish with 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, then season with garlic salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the fish for about 5 minutes or so. Turn fish over and cook another 5-6 minutes or until the fish flakes.
  3. Serve up with lemon wedges and tartar sauce if desired.

  • Dash of any other herbs (e.g., tarragon, dill, oregano, rosemary, marjoram, thyme, or cayenne)
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
  • Cooked rice or pasta

  2. Sprinkle it with sea salt and cracked pepper, oil, and minced onions. Top with the tomato soup.
  3. Bake at 425 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Serve your rockfish over the rice or pasta. What a healthy meal! Enjoy.
