Instructions Checklist
  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil.

  • Place fillets on the prepared pan. Stir parsley and lemon-pepper seasoning into the melted butter in a small bowl. Baste fillets with the butter mixture using a turkey baster, using the entire mixture. Sprinkle fillets with bread crumbs.

  • Broil in the preheated oven until the thickest part of the fish flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 9 minutes.

  • Remove fish from the pan and place it on a platter. Remove the foil very carefully from the pan, taking care not to spill the excess butter sauce, and pour over the fish. Serve immediately.

Cook's Note:

The thicker and bigger the fillets, the longer the cooking time.

Very tasty! I do think you could get away with WAY less butter. Not only was there an excess amount, the lemon pepper flavor gets diluted in it. No turkey baster neede either...just drizzle or brush the butter over the fish. Also try and use a pan that's not much bigger than the first, otherwise the butter starts to burn. Mine was perfectly done after 7 minutes. I used panko bread crumbs because that's what I had on hand, and it added a nice crunch. Read More
