  • Pinch of ground black pepper

  • Optional: 1/8 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika

Bake with 1 Tablespoon chopped roasted red peppers or serve sprinkled with 1/2 Tablespoon chopped fresh basil.

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. Arrange fillets in baking dish. Drizzle with the lemon juice and olive oil. Sprinkle with the garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle with the paprika (if using), and lightly rub it in.

  3. Bake until the flesh is opaque but still juicy, 15 to 20 minutes (25 to 30 if cooking from frozen).

  4. Serve with the pan juices spooned over the top.

Verdict: Quite good. Would recommend.

That does sound good. I'll pass it on to Elder Daughter, as she's our seafood chef. She usually sautées or microwaves fish, but the seasonings sound just the thing.

It was yummy. And it didn't take much prep time. :-)
