I bought this fish called Rockfish at Whole Foods, I’ve never seen this fish before. The Rockfish was in a fillet form and reasonably priced, so I thought why not 🙂 What is Rockfish? After some online searching, I learned that in the US the term Rockfish refers most often to the striped bass.
I cooked Rockfish the same way as I cook all other fish fillets – on a non-stick frying pan with a little bit of oil. I rub the Rockfish with the Cajun spice mix before cooking, so that’s why I call it a “Cajun Rockfish” 🙂 Of course, you can use any kind of spices for the Rockfish. Just season it with your favorite spices and cook on a pre-heated non-stick pan about 4 minutes per side or until the fish flakes easily with the fork. This Rockfish turned out delicious – it’s a very tasty fish and I will be buying Rockfish again.

- 1 tbsp oil
Instructions How To Cook Rockfish
- Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
- Season the Rockfish with the Cajun seasoning on both sides.
- Put the fish fillets on the frying pan so they are not touching. Cook the Rockfish for 4 minutes, then carefully flip the fillets with a spatula and cook on another side for 4 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through (it should flake easily with a fork).
On the top photo, the Rockfish is served with a side dish of quinoa – see how to make quinoa in a rice cooker.
