I always heard that the "rule of thumb" for baking fish was 10 minutes for every inch of thickness at 350 degrees F. Of course, that may be for commercial convection ovens, not home ovens. I know that "rule of thumb" works for me at work when I'm baking fish for buffets.

When I bake fish (salmon,tilapia,sole,catfish etc)
I wrap the filet in heavy duty tin foil - put on some seasoning
(soy sauce, mustard sauce, tomato sauce) and bake @350
testing for doneness after 20 min.
I also fold the thin (tail end) of the filet over to get appx. even
No pan to clean !

Rule of thumb for fish is 10 minutes per inch of thickness, whether on top the stove or in the oven.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

Beat me to it, CJ. Thanks. Plus, when you see the white liquid protein seeping thru, but not huge amounts, it's done. Huge amounts means its OVERdone.
