Cooking Fish

Minutes count when cooking fish. Follow these time and temperature tips based on cooking method.
Before you bake fish, add a layer of butter or margarine.

Weigh dressed fish or use a ruler to measure the thickness of fillets and steaks in order to better estimate when to check for doneness. Properly cooked fish is opaque, flakes easily when tested with a fork, and comes away from the bones readily; the juices should be milky white.
