Blackened Rockfish

My boys say they could eat this multiple times a week. Not a fan of fish w/ bones myself but this was worth it b/c this was definitely my favorite non-salmon recipe to-date! 😋

I initially served this dish w/ my Roasted Brussels Sprouts and an Italian salad.

Blackened Rockfish Recipe
