Product Questions

As a rule of thumb, you will want to bake a steak or fillet of fish at 450°F for 4 to 6 minutes per half-inch of thickness. This should produce perfectly flaky fish. Be careful to not bake too much longer than this as fish can dry out quickly.

One of our favorite ways to bake fish is to wrap it in a packet of foil or parchment paper with your favorite sauces. It’s especially good to include a sauce when baking white fish, as it helps keep the fish from drying out. You can also add  lemon, herbs, and butter to the packet - these will be absorbed during the baking process and will add lots of flavor to the finished dish.
