Happy Mother’s Day ladies!
I am cooking up one of my favorite dishes to celebrate.
Lemon Pepper Fish with Lemon Butter Rice is the perfect meal to celebrate the special mother in your life.
This dish is so simple to create you still have time to surprise mom!
First, purchase fresh white fish such as red snapper, halibut, or catfish.
Secondly, season the fish with extra virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, creole seasoning and black pepper.
I added just a pinch of cayenne pepper for color and spice.
Lastly, marinate the fish for about 1 hour or up to overnight for a richer lemony flavor.
I marinated my fish for 1 hour because I was in a rush and I wanted to eat!
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and bake the fish for about 20-25 minutes and broil for a couple of minutes to brown the top of the fish.
Don’t forget to baste your fish with the lemon butter pan juices before serving.
Prepare my delicious Lemon Butter Rice while the fish is baking.
