Baked Yellowtail Rockfish Fillets
This was my first go at baking Yellowtail Rockfish fillets and I’m very happy. Yellowtail Rockfish is a lean white fish similar to Snapper. It’s mild tasting and cooks up beautifully with very little fuss. I got mine from Skipper Otto’s Cary Williams. Thanks Cary! This recipe is based on a pared down recipe of this Baked Rock Fish Fillet recipe.

I served this with panfried zoodles and Greek Spinach Rice.
