Burnt fish is the result of accidentally burning raw anchovies while attempting to make anchovies. Cooking anchovies requires 1 Cooking, and burning it will become less common with a higher Cooking level. They stop being burned at 34 Cooking.
The burnt fish has no use whatsoever, although you can unsuccessfully attempt to eat it. Like most other burnt food, it is tradeable to other players but not on the Grand Exchange.
