I had an abundance of those little colorful, sweet bell peppers left over from my Ladies Night In! party that I wanted to incorporate into my dinner tonight. As I searched the freezer for a protein to pair with the little peppers, I came across some frozen Pacific rockfish filets. (We catch a lot of rockfish when we go fishing off the coast of San Diego... and since we don't get around to eating them all at once, my dad vacuum seals the filets so we can put them in our freezers)

Rockfish are the most common near-shore fish on the West Coast, there are over 70 different varieties! While there are taste differences in several varieties, all rockfish -- also known as rock cod or Pacific snapper -- are firm, lean, mild-flavored fish.
I soon had a colorful, healthy fish dish beginning to develop in my mind..... Grilled Rockfish with Sweet Bell Pepper, Corn, and Tomato Salad!
