You don’t have to be a fish lover to enjoy eating ocean perch. It has a mild flavor that isn’t fishy and a firm texture that holds up to a variety of cooking techniques. Baking the fish gives you lots of flexibility in terms of building the flavors in the dish, while maximizing fish's heart-healthy benefits. By broiling it during the last few minutes of cooking time, you'll end up with a lovely golden color on top and a deliciously tender and flavorful flaky interior.
