How to Cook Flawless Fish Fillets
Start With a Hot Skillet
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Pat the fish dry on both sides. Then season the fillets with salt and pepper. Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the fillets in the pan.
Press to Sear
Press down on the fillets lightly using a spatula to sear them evenly. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until the edges of the fillets are lightly browned. Do not flip the fish.
Finish in the Oven
Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven, and cook until the fillets are done, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately, seared side up.
