Expert Tips

Choose a mild-flavored fish for this recipe, such as cod, walleye, snapper or perch.

Fish fillets may vary in thickness quite a bit. If possible, select fillets that are about 1/2 inch thick. If you have thicker fillets, you may need to add a few more minutes to the cook time.

Serve with a kicked-up tartar sauce made by mixing fat-free mayonnaise and a spoonful of basil pesto. Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh basil.
