Step 1

Spray large baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Place beaten eggs in a shallow dish. Stir in mayonnaise and lemon juice. Stir until well-combined.

In a separate shallow dish, stir together breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and the herbs and spices. Mix well.

Dip each fillet into the egg mixture and coat both sides. Let excess drip off, then dip into breadcrumb cheese mixture to coat both sides.

Place coated fillets in prepared baking pan. Bake, uncovered at 400°F for 20 to 30 minutes or until fish is white and flaky inside.
