I honestly get pretty burnt out on rockfish about halfway through the season, I played around with a blackened recipe and boy did it re-ignite my interest in rockfish..
This was amazing...

I would do this on the grill with a cast iron skillet so you don't smoke out your house..

1) season the fish with:
cayenne pepper (easy on this or it will hurt ya)
salt
black pepper
onion powder
dried thyme
dried oregano
(season pretty heavy in general..  should be like a crust..)

2) Melt a half a stick of butter in the microwave in a shallow bowl..

3) Heat up your grill to 400- 600 degrees with the skillet on it.. 

4) Dip the fillets in the melted butter right before you drop them on the super hot skillet (fully submerse them in the butter)

5) Cook like 2 min on each side..   the fillets will dance in the skillet if its hot enough..   which is what you want..

pull them off and it will be crispy and spicy on the outside and moist and firm in the middle..

so darn good..
I suggest you give it a shot!

I like to blacken my fish too.  Try using the blackened fillets in tacos for a spicy fish taco.

I got so I only cook in cast Iron. There are many great recipes on u-tube. Dutch Oven Cooking is great too.

Sounds delish- we recently picked up a small container of Seared Ahi spice mix from the meat counter at New Frontiers- comes in a small clear plastic container that the store has mixed up- IT IS AMAZING. Little spicy, LOTS YUMMY. I highly recommend trying it- we've done the fish blackened with this seasoning and fried in oil- both were excellent. Makes that rockfish something special.

Thanks for the recipe, Joe.
Keep it Reel!

I've been thinking about gutting them scaleing them and throwing them on the oak pit.
