My husband fishes a lot so I cook a great deal of fish. This recipe is fast, easy, and I always have the ingredients on hand. I use it with any light fish such as trout or red snapper. And everyone loves it!
Spray a baking sheet or shallow pan with cooking spray. If you really want an easy clean up line it with foil first.
Lay your fillets on the pan and coat with the mayonnaise.
Sprinkle well with the fish rub. Be generous. No salt and pepper needed, it's usually in the rub.
Sprinkle the panko bread crumbs over the fish.
Sprinkle the lemon zest over each one.
Bake at 425 until it flakes with a fork, 10 to 20 minutes. This really depends on the thickness of the fish. My test is to stick a fork straight down through the thickest part. If you feel any resistance it's not done. If it goes in like butter it's done! Saves breaking up your pretty fish testing for flakiness.
