Rockfish Fillets with Espresso Rub Recipe

Rockfish Fillets with Espresso Rub

Serves 4
Try a robust rub of espresso and chili powders to season mild rockfish. Serve with warm tortillas or rice.


  • 4 rockfish fillets (about 4 to 8 oz each)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1 tsp brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder
  • 1/4 tsp coarse ground pepper
  • Metropolitan Market Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 lime wedges


  1. Mix together salt, espresso powder, brown sugar, chile powder, and pepper. Sprinkle/rub seasoning onto both sides of rockfish fillets.
  2. Oil grill/broiler/saute pan; heat over medium-high heat. Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, just until fish is opaque throughout. Squeeze lime wedges over fillets before serving.
