Fish is one of those dishes that people think is complicated, but is actually pretty straightforward when you know what you’re doing. Part of that is knowing the 10-minute rule, which can help you estimate how long your piece of fish needs to be cooked. The 10-minute rule is simple enough, measure the fish at its thickest point and cook it for 10 minutes per inch, turning halfway through the cooking time. If the fish is under 1/2 inch thick, you don't need to turn it over. Make sure the center of your fish should reach 145°F. Another easy way to tell without even using a thermometer is cutting the piece of fish in the thickest part and looking at the texture. The fish should be opaque (not translucent like when it’s raw) and break easily into flakes when you nudge it with a fork.
