- Bake whiting for 10-12 minutes or until fish is fork tender.
How do I cook fish on top of the stove?
Do you cook whiting with the skin on?
Add fish, skin side-down, and cook, pressing gently on back of filets to ensure good contact with skin, until skin is crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. If skin shows resistance when attempting to lift with a spatula, allow it to continue to cook until it lifts easily. Flip fish and cook until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes.
