Quick and Easy - Simple Baked Whiting

I love my fish FRIED! Sadly this is not always the healthiest option. *smiles*

In the interest of good health, a little baked fish every now and then is good for you.

Fresh ingredients are best.
However if you are in a pinch, you may use bottled lemon juice and jarred minced garlic.

Frozen Whiting Fillets are an inexpensive option.

Any fish may be substituted in this recipe.
I have also used this combination of ingredients for pan seared Tilapia. YUM!



Measurements are not precise. I generally eyeball them.
Sea Salt
Black Pepper
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Lemon Pepper Seasoning
Minced Garlic
Lemon Juice
Olive Oil

1. Arrange Fish Fillets on a broiler rack. I used Foil for quick clean up.
2. Season Fish on Both Sides. Start with dry ingredients.
3. Finish with Olive Oil and Lemon Pepper Seasoning and Oil.
4. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 7 to 12 minutes (until fish is opaque)
4. Serve HOT

Was the fish frozen when you seasoned them? If not, how did you defrost them?

I follwed directions on the back of the pkg re: defrosting.
One can put the pkg in athe bowl in the fridge n defrost overnight. The fish was fully thawed before seasoning. Hth
