  • Brush frozen fish with 2 teaspoons olive oil and season both sides with garlic pepper, lemon-pepper seasoning, salt, and pepper. Top with 1/2 of the lemon juice. Place fish in a broiler pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 3 minutes. Turn fillets over and continue to bake, watching closely, until fish begins to flake, 3 to 5 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer fish to the prepared cast iron pan. Leave the oven on.

  • Top fish with 1/4 cup melted butter and the remaining lemon juice and season with garlic pepper, lemon-pepper seasoning, salt, and pepper. Season bread crumbs as desired and mix with slivered almonds and 1 teaspoon butter. Sprinkle over fish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven, watching closely and without turning, until golden brown on top, 5 to 7 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Butter amount can be decreased, if desired. You can use any seasonings or cooking oil of your choice.
