  • 4 rockfish fillets (6 oz each serving)
  • 1 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Cajun-style seasoning
  • Avocado-Corn Salsa:
  • 2 Tbsp yellow onion, diced
  • 1/2 small bell pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Olive Oil, divided
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn kernels, cooked and cooled
  • Half of a small avocado, seeded, peeled and diced
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • Salt, to taste


  1. Cook onion and bell pepper in olive oil over medium heat until onion is transparent. Allow to cool.
  2. Place onion and pepper to a small bowl; stir in corn, avocado, lime juice, cilantro, cumin and salt. Set aside, or refrigerate until serving.
