Note: The cooking times listed in this guide are estimated times and will vary depending on the type of fish and the thickness of the meat. Fish is done when the meat becomes opaque white and has a flaky texture. Overcooking will result in fish that is less tender, flavorful, and moist than fish cooked with the recommended time and temperature guidelines.
