  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sweet Hungarian paprika, if desired

    Arrange fillets in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Drizzle with lemon juice and oil; sprinkle with garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, and paprika, and lightly rub it in. Bake until flesh is completely opaque but still juicy, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve with pan juices spooned over the top.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Fish is a lean protein source that supplies amino acids that give structure to the body in skin, cell membranes and muscles.
  • tip 2
    Use the mild white fish that is most fresh at your market. You can use haddock, hake, red snapper, or sole instead of cod.
  • tip 3
    Lose Weight the Smart Low-Carb Way from Prevention® (2002) p. 232.
