  • 1/2 tsp dried Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/8 tsp salt

  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • cooking spray

  3. In a small dish combine garlic powder, Italian seasoning, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  4. Lay 1-2 lemon slices on each fillet and sprinkle seasoning mixture on top of fish fillets (you may have leftover seasoning mixture)
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes until fish is white and flaky and no longer opaque.
  6. Serve hot with steamed broccoli and wild rice.
