Blackened Rockfish with Avocado Sauce

For Blackened Seasoning
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

For the Rockfish
1 tablespoon coconut oil melted, or avocado oil
1 lb. rockfish (about 4 fillets)
Avocado Fish Sauce
1 avocado
½ cup non-fat Greek yogurt
1 cup water
2 cups cilantro with stems
1/2 lime juice or 1 teaspoon
1 large garlic clove
1/2 teaspoon salt

Prepare the Blackened Seasoning
In a small bowl mix all the ingredients for the blackened seasoning. Set aside.
Bake and season the Rockfish:
Preheat the oven to broil. In a 9 x 13 inch baking dish drizzle 1 tablespoon of oil. Rinse the rockfish in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Add it to the prepared baking dish. Pour blackened seasoning on top of the fish and using hands rub it into the fish and around the sides and bottom. Bake uncovered 6-10 minutes or until the center is cooked and flakes apart when pulled with a fork (bake 6 minutes for thin slices, thick slices might need about 10 minutes). If it starts to burn on top cover in foil.
While the fish bakes, make the Avocado Sauce
Blend all ingredients of the avocado fish taco sauce in a blender.
Drizzle the avocado fish taco sauce on top of the baked rockfish. Serve with a side of vegetables and rice or into tacos.
