Broiled corvina is a lightening fast meal, perfect for weeknight cooking. Season corvina with your favorite spice blend and slide under the broiler. In under 10 minutes, you’ll have perfectly cooked fish for a delicious, low-fat dinner.
We all know that fish is a great protein. Corvina is low in fat, with only 1.7 grams for a 5 ounce serving, and clocks in with an impressive 28 grams of protein.
Broiling is a quick and healthy way to have fish for dinner. This fish falls right in line with a Mediterranean diet. It is heart-healthy, low in calories and is an excellent source of lean protein.
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.
I love broiled fish. Those little bits of char give the corvina so much flavor, along with the spice blend.
This is a perfect weeknight meal, because it is super speedy and you can pair it with any vegetables that you like for a fast and nutritious dinner.
There you have it. A delicious and healthy way to get more fish into your diet in under ten minutes.
