Quick and Easy Baked Fish Fillet

Rated as 4.85 out of 5 Stars

"We love boating here in the Hamptons in NY. Fluke (summer flounder) fishing is one of our favorite past times. The water is so clean you can actually watch the fish going to the hook. With fresh fish, we enjoy very basic, tasty recipes. This is a keeper!"

I make this all the time and use fish that’s on sale or I have on hand but I like the tilapia the most .

My husband and I both like fish and I found this recipe. I had cod so used that. I turned the skinny end under so it would not overcook. Made no other changes. It was done in 25 minutes as sugge...

Easy to make - 5 stars in this area. My family enjoyed it but thought it was a little plain. My "non fish eating" 12 year old did enjoy it dipped in soy sauce. Will make it again but will pr...

I used Lemon Pepper and a bit of ginger to intensify the flavor a bit. Very easy prep! It might be my oven, but it took more like 32 minutes to fully cook. I will make this again!
