Baked Asian Rockfish

Background and History

Baked Asian Rockfish is a delightful fusion of Asian flavors and succulent rockfish, a dish inspired by the rich culinary traditions of Asian cuisine. Rockfish, known for its mild and flaky texture, pairs beautifully with a marinade that boasts a harmonious blend of soy, ginger, and garlic, creating a mouthwatering seafood experience.


4 rockfish fillets (about 6 ounces each)

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons hoisin sauce

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 green onions, sliced (for garnish)

Sesame seeds (for garnish)


Marinate Rockfish

In a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, hoisin sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, honey, minced ginger, and minced garlic to create the marinade.

Place rockfish fillets in a shallow dish and pour half of the marinade over them. Allow them to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

Bake Rockfish

Transfer the marinated rockfish fillets to a baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and easily flakes with a fork.

Baste with Marinade

During baking, baste the fillets with the remaining marinade to enhance flavor and moisture.

Garnish and Serve

Once baked, garnish the rockfish with sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
