Rockin’ Rockfish Recipe

Sustainable Seafood Type: Pacific Rockfish

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 tomatillo diced
  • 1 medium jalapeno minced
  • 2 Tbs cilantro chopped
  • 1 red onion sliced thin
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 2 green peppers sliced
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup olives sliced
  • 2 Tbs olive juice
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 Tbs butter
  • 1lb filet of Pacific Rockfish
  • Pinch of cayenne
  • Salt

 

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Season your rockfish fillet with cayenne and salt. Over medium heat, sauté onions in olive oil for 3 minutes then add the peppers, tomatoes, tomatillos, and white wine. Allow to reduce for about 6-8 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sliced olives and olive juice. Heat an oven safe pan with the butter and then add your rockfish face-down for about 2 minutes. Flip the fish and bake in the oven for about 5 minutes. You can do this as the sauce is reducing. Put it all together adding sliced avocado and cilantro on top!
