  1. Preheat the oven to 350°

  6. Season both sides of the filet with salt and pepper then coat with the all purpose flour.
  7. Heat the canola oil in a small cast iron or other oven safe pan.
  8. When hot add the filet and cook for two minutes, turn the fish and cook for two minutes.
  9. Put the pan in the oven and cook for 15 – 20 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet
  10. When the fish is cooked cut it in half.
  11. To plate add 1 cup of rice to a plate or bowl, top with 1/2 of the filet and apple/avocado mixture.
  12. Drizzle with each with remaining vinaigrette.
  13. Serve with roasted vegetables or a side salad.
