This recipe came from It gives the fish a nice crunchy topping without being dried out. I also like to spritz lemon juice across the fillets the instant they come out of the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 (4 ounce) fish fillets (fresh or frozen, cod or even flounder works well)
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 tablespoons seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 14 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 beaten egg white


  1. Preheat oven to 500.
  2. Let fish thaw if it's frozen.
  3. After thawing, rinse and pat dry.
  4. Spray baking pan with nonstick spray.
  5. Mix together bread crumbs, cornmeal and lemon pepper.
  6. Add the oil, tossing mixture to combine.
  7. Dip ONE side of fish fillet into the beaten egg white, then dredge through the bread crumb mixture (just the one side).
  8. Place fish, coating side up, on the baking pan.
  9. Bake, uncovered for 6 to 8 minutes for each 1/2 inch thickness of fish, or until it flakes easily with a fork.

This is a great recipe. It was very easy and tasted very good. The fish turned out light brown with a nice crisp to it. Much better then frying the fish. I will be making this again and again.

Here's a variation: instead of lemon pepper, use celery salt and just add a dash of ground red pepper.- so glad you posted this. Thanks.
