Oven Fried Lemon Pepper Fish
An easy and tasty way to prepare fried fish, without the calories.
This is a very easy fish recipe that takes 10 minutes to prepare and 25 minutes to cook.
4 fish fillets
1 fresh lemon
A dash of salt
Enough pepper to season to taste
1 tbsp of butter
Cooking oil spray(with 0 calories)
First you will need to preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Next you will place the fish fillets onto a plate. Cut the lemon in half, and squeeze one half of the lemon over the fillets. Then you will season the fillets with a dash of salt and pepper to taste, remember to season both sides. Make sure that you squeeze the lemon over the fillets before adding the seasonings because the lemon juice will remove the seasonings if this step is reversed. Pour your cornmeal onto a another plate and very gently coat the fish by turning the fillets over. Do not press the fillets firmly into the cornmeal. If you do you’ll be adding unnecessary calories, and your fish will turn out with a heavy taste instead of the light and crispy taste that we’re going for. Next, spray your pan with the nonstick cooking spray. Place the fish onto the pan and squeeze the top of the fillets with the remaining half of the lemon. Then you will lightly spray the top of your fish with the cooking oil. After that you will cut the butter into 4 very thin pieces and place the pieces onto each fish. Then sprinkle again with pepper. Allow the fish to cook for about 25 minutes. If you want your fillets extra crispy, put your oven broiler on high for the last 2 minutes of cooking or until you have the golden brown appearance that suits your taste.
