  • Marinate in the refrigerator, 30 minutes to 1 hour.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Melt butter and pour evenly over the fish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until flesh flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve with juices spooned over the fish, if desired.

Cook's Note:

Substitute Cajun seasoning (such as Tony Chachere's(R)) for the ground red pepper, if desired.
