For the Rockfish

  1. Drizzle the rockfish fillets with 3 tbsp. of olive oil and season the fish with salt. Then on the fillet side add the panko crumbs pushing down on the breads crumbs to help them adhere to the fish. In a large saute pan on medium heat add the remaining olive oil and butter. Place the fish fillet with breading side down into the pan. Cook on medium to medium low heat. Allow the fish to cook for 3-4 minutes or until the breading become golden brown.

Test the doneness of the carrots with a cake tester, if the tester goes through the carrot with little resistance then they are done Take the carrots out of the oven and allow them to cool.
