What’s Cookin’ – Easy Baked Fish Filets

This is one of those recipes that I make off the top of my head.  When I was a working mom, it was something that I could make in a hurry, since it only takes a few minutes to put together and to bake.  It’s versatile, too.  When catfish filets and lemon pepper seasoning was all the rage, that’s what I used.  Now that Tilapia is the fish filet of choice, I use it, but vary the seasonings a bit.  The recipe is also easily adaptable for however many servings you need to make.

So, if you want an easy fish entrée that makes another good Lenten meal, try making these Easy Baked Fish Filets.  They come out nicely steamed and tender with a light touch of seasoning.

And, because it’s a simple dish, most kids will love them, too.  This was one of my kids favorite ways to eat fish when they were young.

Easy Baked Fish Filets ingredients.  Preheat oven to 350° F.

Some seasoning choices.  I chose to use the Greek Seasoning this time.

Place the fish filets in an appropriately sized pan coated with cooking spray.  Top each filet with a pat of butter, a teaspoon of lemon juice, and seasoning.  Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 10 to 15 minutes.  (Sorry about the well-used baking dish).

Yummy.

    Seems like a silly question, but your recipe is for thawed/fresh fish filets? Thx!

      You can use fresh or frozen and it doesn’t even have to be Tilapia. When catfish filets were all the rage, I used those. If you use frozen, they will have to be thawed first. Good thing is that filets thaw quickly. I have even used the microwave to thaw them first back when I worked and sometimes decided to make these at the last minute.

      They really are quick, easy, and make a light meal.
