Last night we devoured some rockfish enchiladas. Actually this recipe from Alaskan Seafood Marketing Institute originally calls for Halibut but I used Rockfish instead and they turned out great. Any white fish will do. Kids love them and you will too. Easy, yummy, healthy. Enjoy!

Wild Alaskan Rockfish Enchiladas



  • 1/2 teaspoon each: garlic salt, lemon pepper seasoning, and chipotle chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lb. 4 oz. pieces Alaska Rockfish fillets
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 can about 18 to 19 oz. green salsa (enchilada or tomatillo)
  • 2 oz can diced green chiles (mild or hot, to taste)
  • 8 7 to 8-inch size corn or flour tortillas
  • 8 oz. shredded Pepper-Jack or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 can 15 oz. seasoned black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro



  • Blend garlic salt, lemon pepper, chipotle chili pepper and cumin. Sprinkle on all sides of halibut to season. Cook Alaska halibut in olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, just until fish is opaque throughout. Cool slightly; then break halibut into chunks.
  • Preheat oven to 400oF (or 375oF if using a glass baking dish). Pour and spread 3/4 cup of the green sauce on bottom of a 9x13-inch pan. Heat a large saucepan to medium-high; pour in remaining green sauce and chiles. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 to 3 minutes, until hot. One by one, dip the tortillas in the sauce, place on plate, fill with about 1/8th of halibut chunks and about 1/4 cup of beans. Sprinkle on 1 tablespoon cheese; roll up. Place enchiladas snugly next to each other in the baking dish. Pour the remaining sauce over the enchiladas; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  • Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until sauce is bubbling and enchiladas are heated through. Sprinkle on cilantro when serving.
