    easy rule.

    The general rule for cooking seafood is to bake, broil, sauté or grill at 450 degrees for 10 minutes per inch of thickness. This may vary for frying, which will only take about 1-2 minutes per inch of thickness, or steaming, which will take about an extra 2-3 minutes per inch of thickness.

    Here are some additional cooking tips:

    • Measure the fish at the thickest point. (You can fold thinner portions underneath to create the same thickness as the thickest portion.)
    • Seafood cooks quickly and appliances vary, so cooking times may need to be adjusted.
    • Firmer and denser fish (such as tuna and swordfish) might require about an extra 4-8 minutes per inch of thickness if you prefer them cooked through.
    • You'll know your fish is done when it turns from translucent (glassy looking) to opaque (a solid color) and just begins to flake. Make sure you pull it off the heat then, or it may dry out.
    • Seafood cooks nicely from a frozen state, so you don't have to take the time to thaw. Just rinse the frozen fish, dry with a paper towel, and brush with oil before seasoning. Then, add about 15 minutes per inch of thickness to your cook time.
