  • Pour enough of the lemon butter sauce to cover the bottom of your baking dish, then arrange your fillets into the baking dish on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 Tbsp of Italian seasoning and lemon zest, then season with salt and pepper (to taste).
  • Leave uncovered and bake (depending on the thickness of your fillets). Our thickest fillet cooked in 20 minutes. If you are using thin Fillet portions, cook for 12-15 minutes and check the center of your largest portion. The Fish fillet should be white and flaky when done.
