Ingredients

  • 2

    lemons

  • Cooking spray

  • 4

    (6-ounce) red snapper or other firm white fish fillets

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon paprika

  • 1/4

    teaspoon black pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons butter, softened

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons chopped fresh herbs (such as rosemary, thyme, basil, or parsley)

  • Fresh herb sprigs (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°. Cut 1 lemon into 8 slices. Place slices, in pairs, on a rimmed baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Grate remaining lemon to get 1 teaspoon lemon rind; set aside. Reserve lemon for another use. Place 1 fillet on top of each pair of lemon slices. Combine salt, paprika, and pepper; sprinkle evenly over fish. Bake at 425° for 13 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. While fish bakes, combine reserved lemon rind, butter, and herbs in a small bowl. Place fish and lemon slices on individual serving plates; top each fillet with herbed butter, spreading to melt, if desired. Garnish with herb sprigs, if desired.
