Here's and old recipe I've used often and is pretty tasty. Fresh Bass fillets are baked seasoned with lemon and thyme. When using a hot oven and short cook time, you avoid over cooking the fish.

Quick, easy and very tasty; great way to serve fresh bass fillets. A neighbor gave us a lot of these fillets and I'd never made them before so started searching Zaar and so glad I found this one - I always worry about over cooking fish and followed this recipe exactly including cook times and it came out perfect. Served with garden fresh tomatoes salad and corn and it made a wonderful dinner. Thanks Chuck for a very nice recipe
