Pan-Sautéed Black Rockfish Fillets
Pan-Sautéed Black Rockfish Fillets - I've been an avid fisherman my whole life and learned so much from my Dad in my youth ... Thanks Dad. We were RVing in Brookings Oregon recently and decided to go do some deep sea fishing with the hope of getting some Black Rockfish and Ling Cod. I was lucky enough to get my limit (5) of Black Rockfish but no luck getting any Ling Cod (limit of 2 - greater than 22 inches).
Ingredients: Two Black Rockfish Fillets, sea salt & black pepper to taste, 2 tablespoons roasted garlic extra virgin olive oil, and 2 tablespoons salted butter.
Directions: Heat a seasoned cast iron or non-stick pan over medium high heat. Season the fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and swirl to coast the pan. Add the fish to the pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes before flipping the fillets. Add the butter and spoon the melted butter on the fillets until the internal temperature of the fillets reach 145ºF or the fish flakes easily.
For a scrumptious low carb meal I served the sautéed fillet with a nice green salad. Doesn't get any better than fresh fish fillets - from the Pacific Ocean straight to the frying pan.
