How to Bake Ocean Perch

Ocean perch is a tasty, healthful and economical fish for when you’re in the mood for excellent seafood but don’t want to spend a lot of money. It is relatively low priced, usually available year round and is simple to prepare and cook.

You can find ocean perch sold whole as well as filleted. Look for firm flesh and a bright, shiny skin. If you’re buying whole fish, the ocean perch’s gills should be a healthy pinkish red in color.

The flesh of ocean perch is delicate but moist. It’s a fantastic fish for frying, but most of the time I prefer to bake it.

If you’re starting with whole fish, you must clean it thoroughly, taking care to rub away all of the black lining that you will find in the belly cavity. You can cook either fillets or the whole fish with the outer skin still on.
