What do you do when you want to grill fish, but run out of propane shortly after firing the grill up? You bake it! Running out of propane did not stop us from having a great dinner. When baking fish I like to keep the seasoning simple. I want to taste the fish, not the seasoning.
This recipe is great for any mild fish. Walleye, tilapia, and redfish are my favorites to bake or grill. Smaller fish, such as bluegill and crappie, seem to fall apart too easily, so I prefer frying these types of fish.
I start out by making a non-stick aluminum foil boat with a small amount of lemon juice poured in. Next, I sprinkle the fillets with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, Lawry’s seasoned salt, and Old Bay seasoning. I only season one side of the fillet, but you can do both sides if you prefer.
I cooked the fish for about 10-12 minutes per side in a 425 degree oven. Be careful to avoid breaking the fillet while flipping.
This recipe is very easy, but it turned out great. One other thing I really like about this recipe is the prep time is less than 5 minutes.
