Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Dry the fish well with paper towels then sprinkle the lemon pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and paprika evenly over both sides of the fish.
1 tablespoon lemon pepper, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, 1 teaspoon sweet paprika, 4 pieces white fish
Drizzle half of the olive oil over one side of the fish pieces then pat the spices onto the fish so that they really stick to the fish. Transfer the fish to a baking sheet, oiled side down. Drizzle the remaining olive oil over the fish and once more pat the spices onto the fish. Arrange a few lemon slices around the fish.
2 tablespoon olive oil, 1 lemon
Bake the lemon pepper fish for 12-15 minutes, or until it turns white and flakes easily. Serve the fish with the lemon slices on the side and a little parsley sprinkled over the top.
We use our homemade lemon pepper seasoning, which contains salt, in this recipe. If the lemon pepper you use doesn't have salt in the ingredients, you'll want to season the fish with salt. In the pictures. we've used tilapia. But any firm white fish will work well.
