Butter-Basted Seasoned Rockfish


Basting is a cooking technique that allows you to keep your meat/fish very moist and tender by continually spooning sauce over the top while cooking. This melt-in-your mouth seasoned Rockfish recipe can be made with any of your favorite fish. Rockfish is in season here in Virginia Beach, therefore, I must buy! :)


- 5, 6 oz. Rockfish (or your favorite fish) fillets (boneless, skinless)
- 4 Tbs butter
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- pinch salt
- pinch pepper
- pinch Old Bay Seasoning
- 1/3 cup half and half
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 Tbs lemon juice
- fresh dill

Heat a skillet over medium to high heat. Add butter and let it start to melt. Rub olive oil over fish fillets and sprinkle fish with salt, pepper, and Old Bay seasoning. Place fish in skillet and let sear 4 to 5 minutes without touching it. While fish is searing, in a small bowl, whisk half and half, wine, and lemon juice. Turn fish over carefully. Add half and half mixture to skillet and start spooning the mixture over the fish, continually, for 3 more minutes. Remove fish to plate. Spoon a little more of the basting sauce over the top of the fish if desired, and sprinkle fish will fresh dill. Serve with rice or your favorite side. Enjoy!
