I try hard to plan our meals ahead and have everything on hand for the week but it isn’t always the case.  Sometimes we don’t make it to the store as planned or we end up with last minute plans that mean dinner has to be quick instead of something that takes a couple of hours to prepare.

For those nights when we have to make dinner quickly I like to have wild Alaska seafood on hand.  Wild Alaska Seafood, like that used in my Broiled Alaska Rockfish with Avocado Lime Sauce, cooks from frozen in less than 15 minutes which means I don’t have to worry about time for thawing or a lot of planning. This post is sponsored by the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute but all opinions are my own.

We keep frozen Alaska seafood in the freezer all the time, like we keep flour in the pantry. I know I can make a quick, healthy meal for my family. It’s convenient and best of all it is high quality frozen seafood from Alaska. It’s so important to me that the seafood in not imported and it is wild caught, not farm-raised.  My family loves broiled fish and I love that it is so quick and easy to make. This Broiled Alaska Rockfish is seasoned and cooks from frozen in about 15 minutes. I serve it with an Avocado Sauce that brings all of the flavors together.

Remove your frozen fish fillets from the individual packages and rinse under cold water to remove any ice glaze. I like to cook them on a non-stick baking rack over a baking sheet lined with foil. Place the fillets on your baking sheet and lightly brush them with olive oil on both sides.

Place the fillets in the oven and broil for 3 minutes on each side before adding any butter or seasonings.

While the fillets are in the oven mash the avocado until smooth. Combine the mashed avocado with the Greek yogurt, lime juice, and seasonings. Set aside.

Melt the butter and combine it with the juice from one lime.

After the fillets have broiled for several minutes remove them from the oven and brush the first side with the butter and lime juice mixture. Sprinkle with the seasonings and return to the oven, broiling for an additional 4 minutes.

Again, remove the fillets from the oven. Flip them and brush the remaining side with the butter and lime juice. Sprinkle with seasonings and top with chopped, fresh cilantro. Return to oven and broil for an additional 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and top with the Avocado Lime Sauce and serve with your favorite sides, like steamed veggies and baked potatoes.

Nearly 60% of all seafood harvested in the U.S. comes from Alaska. Alaska is known for its wild salmon, crab, and whitefish varieties. Alaska preserves much of the fresh catch immediately after it leaves the icy water, rapidly chilling the catch then commercially flash freezing at well below zero. Alaska seafood is kept at the peak of freshness locking in the best quality and flavor.

The cold water and natural environment of Alaska produces seafood year round with lean flesh, firm texture, and superior flavor. It’s full of high quality protein, vitamins, minerals, and oils that are essential to good health which is a big reason why I love serving Alaska seafood to my family. It’s also high in protein, low in saturated fat, low in sodium, and one of the best sources of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.

This lime sauce sounds so so good , I bet we can use this on so many dishes ! Thanks


I don’t cook fish nearly enough. I love that combination of lime and avocado and haven’t thought to try it on fish before. It looks really great! I’ll have to see if my store carries this brand of fish.


Now I know what I want for dinner tonight! Avocado on fish! mmmm!

I’m not really a big avocado fan but that fish sounds GREAT. We really don’t eat fish often enough…


This looks like a great company worthy meal. I love the addition of avocado!


It sounds easy enough, we have never really been a fish family, but I would like to start eating it more.
