how to cook rockfish

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.

Cajun Rockfish Recipe


  • Rockfish fillets
  • Cajun spice mix
  • 1 tbsp oil

Instructions How To Cook Rockfish

  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the Rockfish with the Cajun seasoning on both sides.
  3. 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.
