How long should I leave my fish in the oven?
- Heat oven to 400 degrees. Measure fish fillets at the thickest part.
- Roast fish for 10 minutes per inch of thickness, until the fish is opaque and tender when pierced with a fork but before it starts to flake. Serve with lemon wedges, drizzled with more good olive oil.
What is the best temperature to cook fish in the oven?
Preheat the oven to 450°F for fillets and steaks or 350°F for dressed fish. Even thickness: Place the fish in a single layer in a greased shallow baking pan (like a baking sheet). For fillets, tuck under any thin edges so they don’t cook faster than thicker areas.
How long would you cook a fish for?
Roast on high heat: Cook your fish for 18-20 minutes at 450°F, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F and flakes easily with a fork. (Cooking time will vary according to the type/size of your fish.) Then remove from the oven.
