How to broil corvina

Broiling corvina, or any fish for that matter, is a snap. Fish generally cooks quicker than other proteins, but cranking up the heat reduces the time to under 10 minutes.

Place the portions of corvina on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Fish is notorious for sticking to the pan.

Even if you have non-stick sheet pans, I advise placing a piece of parchment on the pan to prevent it from sticking.

Season the corvina

First, we need to season the fish. You can use any seasoning you like. I keep a jar of my homemade Cajun seasoning handy at all times, for a quick flavor booster.

It’s a great way to use up your spices and it’s much less expensive than buying it.

Adjust the oven rack so it is about 6 inches below the broiler. Turn on the broiler and let it heat up before sliding fish into the oven.

What do I need to make broiled corvina?

The best part about this recipe is that you don’t really need any special equipment. There are a few basics which you likely already own, but this is everything you’ll need for this recipe.

  • Quarter sheet pans – This size baking sheet will hold 2 – 4 pieces of corvina, depending on the size of the fillets.
  • Parchment paper – This keeps the fish from sticking.
  • Sharp chefs knife or boning knife – I buy sides of fish, so I need a sharp knife to cut them into portions. Everyone needs a good knife, even if you buy your fish already portioned into fillets.

How long to broil fish?

The corvina will cook in 6 – 8 minutes, depending on the thickness of your fish. As you can see, mine was an inch and a half thick. It was fully cooked in just over 7 minutes.
