When preparing raw fish for baked rockfish recipes, place the fish fillets in a shallow baking dish, and sprinkle with your choice of seasonings. Pour a mixture of butter and either lemon or lime juice over the fillets. Add a touch of salt and pepper before covering and baking.
A traditional recipe involves sprinkling almonds and parsley over the fillets before pouring the butter mixture over them. Betty Crocker offers a recipe in which the raw fillets are prepped with a vegetable mixture containing pesto, carrots and leeks. Alternative methods include brushing a small amount of soy sauce on each side of the fillet before setting aside in the refrigerator. Depending on your tastes, you could also use ingredients such as garlic or coconut to prep the raw fillets.
To create a breading for the fillets, lightly cover the raw fish fillets with flour, dip them in a lightly beaten egg and cover them with bread crumbs before placing them in an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees. The fillets should be cooked for around 10 minutes in a covered baking dish. Afterward, uncover the dish and cook for approximately 10 more minutes or until the fish flakes easily when pricked with a fork.
